The Goji berry, Lycium barbarum, contains the highest antioxidant level of any type of fruit as well as the highest concentration of protein of any fruit. Goji berries are loaded with vitamin C and are unique among fruits in that they contain all essential amino acids. Beautiful bright red fruit eaten either fresh or dried. They should produce 3 to 4 quarts when mature. Drought tolerant once established and very cold hardy. Goji grows along the ground, so staking will provide more space and help keep fruit off the ground. Fruit begins to ripen in summer continuing until hard frost. They are deciduous, self-pollinating and thrive in almost any location. Plants are usually 1 to 2 ft. when shipped.
