Goji Berry Plant

Nutritional Superfood!

  • Slightly sweet fruits with bit of tangy flavor
  • Grows up to 10 ft. tall
  • Bears fruit from summer to frost
Used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, Goji berries are extremely nutritionally dense and high in antioxidants. Claimed to enhance the immune system, improve eyesight and circulation, and protect the liver, Goji berries are truly a superfood.

Bright orange-red, 1/2- to 1-in. berries have a slightly sweet, mildly tangy flavor. Berries can be eaten fresh, made into juice, wine or herbal tea, or dried and enjoyed as a snack similar to raisins.

The Goji shrub will grow 8-10 ft. in full sun to partial shade, with emerald foliage on graceful, vine-like branches. Star-shaped blooms in shades of white, lilac and purple will appear in early summer, with fruit ripening in July. It will continue to fruit and flower until heavy frost. With no known pest or disease problems and high tolerance to drought, once established, the Goji shrub is an easy plant to grow. Zones 5-9.
