Goji Berry


You will receive a mature plant that is between 18” to 24” This plant was propagated from cuttings which means it will fruit the first season (late summer/fall).

Goji berry plants can be grown in any soil type, as long as the soil drains well. The Goji plant grows well in full sun or partial shade.

Lyceum Barbarum, otherwise known as the Goji berry plant, is considered both a fruit and an herb. The Goji berry is a member of the nightshade family, Solanaceae. The Goji berry is low in calories but high in fiber and contains 500 times more vitamin C than an orange. The Goji berry also contains high amounts of iron and vitamin A. The antioxidant zeaxanthin gives the Goji berry its red color which contains a high amount of beta carotene which is great for your skin.

One quarter cup of dried goji berry fruit contains 90 calories, 4 grams, and 11 of the essential amino acids of protein per serving. Goji berries have an ORAC rating of 3290, which puts it between apples and blueberries in terms of antioxidant power. Goji berries have been used for over 2000 years in traditional Chinese medicine.

There is also an ancient Chinese legend that says a man named Li Qing Yuen consumed the Goji berries daily and lived to be 252 years old.

The Goji plant is a slightly thorny deciduous woody shrub, typically 3 to 6 feet tall when cultivated and pruned, though plants can reach 12 feet tall in their natural state. Goji is a member of the solanaceous (tomato or nightshade) plant family, so its cultural and nutritional needs are similar.

Goji plants are adaptable and grow in a range of soil types, with a preferred pH of 6.5 to 7.0. Goji won’t tolerate salinity well (though information can be found indicating that some of its relatives will) and prefers high fertility soils. The best growth is made in relatively light soils that are well-drained such as sandy loams or loams and in areas with plenty of sunshine. Plants can be grown in USDA Hardiness Zones 2 to 9
