Description

Goji berries, also known as wolfberries, are hardy plants that are drought tolerant and grow in zones 3-10 . A brightly colored orange/red fruit with a slightly sour flavor, they are considered a superfood because they are alleged to boost the immune system and brain activity, protect against heart disease and cancer, and improve life expectancy. They are loaded with antioxidants and have high concentrations of vitamin B, C, and amino acids. They are often made into juice or eaten fresh as a snack. Goji berry plants are easy to grow in your own backyard. They will fruit and flower throughout the summer until the first frost. If left unpruned, they can grow as tall as 10-13 feet with a spread of about 4 feet. You will get limited fruit in the first year, but the second year on you’ll get a full crop. Goji berries love growing in containers. You’ll get a more compact plant while the container prevents the roots from spreading, like raspberries. Goji berries put down a deep tap root, so the minimum size container should be 5 gallons.

Plant in full sun.
