If you are looking for a beautiful garden plant that tastes great, is a super food and is packed with antioxidants, then the goji berry plant is what you need. This hardy shrub originates in the Himalayas but can be found growing wild in China, Japan, Turkey and Russia and now is in gardens throughout the world. An attractive shrub which can grow to heights of up to 12 ft., it is a hardy deciduous plant which can survive temperatures as low as -20°F. Fruiting in the fall, these showy shrubs are worth planting for their beautiful foliage as well as their fruit.
Goji Berries are used to treat a broad range of ailments and diseases. The superfood is packed with antioxidants, amino acids, Vitamins C, B and E, essential fatty acids - and are widely used to reduce inflammation. This shrub is easy to grow and will reward you with loads of nutritious berries over a long harvest season. Goji berries are rarely grown commercially in the United States, and their shelf life is short, so fresh berries can seldom be found at local supermarkets or farmers markets. Therefore, growing in your home garden is the best way to enjoy fresh goji berries.

Although Goji berries do exceptionally well in containers and easy to grow, we don't recommend transplanting directly due to their long taproots. An easy solution is to use a "pulp pot" to start them in which will allow you move them to their final location by planting the pulp pot directly into the ground. They will prefer full sun, but can tolerate partial shade. If planting multiple bushes, they will need about 5 feet between plants giving them room to mature. Use a well draining soil with pH 6.5 to 8.0 and amend a few inches of organic material like compost into the soil. If growing in a container, they will need a minimum of a 5 gallon container. Before planting, soak the seed for about an hour and then sow 2-3 seeds in each location about 1/4" deep in a sterile seed starter soil. Keep moist through germination.
