Goji Berry

Goji berries were always this exotic superfruit that you paid a fortune for in my eyes. However, Goji berries are hardy to zone 3! They produce tasty fruits that are absolutely jam packed with antioxidants, anthocyanins, and phenolics. They are considered a powerhouse of a food/medicine by many cultures in the world.

Plant in well draining soil as much as possible when growing Goji’s. Once they’re established they are extremely drought tolerant.

Goji berry is self fertile so you only need one plant to produce fruit. However the more varieties you have, the better the cross pollination will be between plants. We prefer to dry the berries before eating.
