ROOTED Goji Berry Cuttings Starter PlantGoji BerryGoji berry (Lycium barbarum) is a type of fruit that grows on an evergreen shrub native to China, Mongolia, and the Tibetan Himalayas. Also known as wolfberry, the goji berry is rich in vitamin C, zeaxanthin, lutein, betaine, and compounds known as Lycium barbarum polysaccharides. 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.Goji Berry CareGoji Berry plants are naturally drought tolerant and prefer well-draining soil. They thrive in the ground in zones 5-9, tolerating temps down to -10 F and will flourish well in the dry west or humid east. If you're outside of zones 5-9, you can still grow these berries. Plant them in containers and bring them inside when the temperatures drop. Goji will grow in sun or partial shade, but your harvest will be greater with more sun. When planting outside, place your Gojis every 4 ft. They grow into viney bushes. Some customers grow them on a trellis. They are self-pollinating but do better with additional companions.Eat Goji Berries All Year Goji berries get sweeter the longer you leave them on the bush and will be much tastier than what you buy in the store. Eat them fresh, juice them, freeze them or dry them. Frequently consumed as a food, goji berries are slightly tart and sweet and can be eaten dried, raw, or cooked.
