Goji Berry (wolfberry)
The Tibetans, Koreans and Japanese have long known of the virtues of the goji. Now in the west you can buy the dried berries or the juice at your local health food store, or better yet, you can grow your own and save a packet! This tough weeping shrub has white stems that bear olive-like leaves. Mauve flowers are produced in early summer, followed by striking red berries with epic antioxidant properties. Prized by the health food industry.
Goji can be grown as a rambling groundcover, or preferrably, up a trellis for ease of harvest. Improve soil prior to planting with compost and well-rotted manure. Prune in winter to control unwanted growth. Avoid waterlogged soils.
