Eggplants as a perennial

I see that eggplant is a perennial. I've only seen it grown as an annual, but I think I might be able to get away with a second or third year in my climate... the Gulf Coast.

What can you tell me about my chances of an early crop, or a successful crop after the first year?

I don't mind putting out new plants every year, but I'd like to get a head start with established plants if possible.

For further discussion: Apply the same question to other plants, like peppers, etc.

I'm in South Louisiana, almost on the coast.
