This “Superfruit” is juicy and sweet when eaten fresh, or can be dried or frozen! Also called the Wolfberry, Goji berry resembles a red raisin when dried. Most people prefer to eat these berries like raisins. The large 1/2 to 1 berries' sweet flavor falls somewhere between a cherry and a cranberry. Members of the Boxthorn family, Goji berries are native to Southeast Europe and Asia and are related to the nightshade plants: potato, tomato, eggplant, tobacco and chili pepper. Goji leaves and root bark are used in traditional Chinese medicine, and are rich sources of antioxidants, carotenoids, lutein, zeaxanthin, iron, zinc, selenium, essential fatty acids and fiber, as well as respectable amounts of protein. This respectable resume has earned it a superfood status in the health food industry, although they have not been approved to prevent or treat any disease.

Goji Berry prefers a rich, moist well-drained soil and full sun or part shade. Flowering typically begins in the second year with maximum fruit production in the 4th or 5th year. They are highly disease resistant and rarely bothered by insects, so there is no need for any chemicals or sprays. Even deer and rabbits leave it alone!
