Goji Berry

Planting goji berries is a great way to add color and variety to your garden. These brilliant-red, nutrient-rich berries are not only delicious but also very easy to grow. They are delicious eaten fresh, dried, or frozen. Goji berry plants grow tall and wide, with a mounding habit. The blooms are purple/white in early summer and become scarlet red fruit in the fall. Goji berries are drought tolerant but prefer rich, moist, well-drained soil. They are also self-pollinating and a heavy producer. With a little bit of care and attention, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of fresh goji berries right from your own backyard.
