Brussels Sprouts a perennial?

Los Alamos, NM(Zone 5a)

I recently read somewhere in PF that brussels sprouts were perennials not the biennials I thought they were. In fact, the post said that they would produce brussels sprouts the second year as well. Anyone know about this? I was just about to pull up my brussels sprouts plants. Maybe I shouldn't.

Thanks for clarifying that. I guess I will pull up the plants after all.
