tradition Chinese medicine plant loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. I just ordered two more from Bluestone's spring sale.

the plants look a whole lot like pomegranates. I already have the blueberries in.

Thanks for this reminder; I've actually been considering getting some of these two Proven Winners cultivars of Goji Berry. Now is a good time to get them at 50% off, and I've placed my order. Thumbs up

Bluestone is one of my favorites. I bought some goji berries earlier but the plants were so tiny they are not doing much so far.

I just bought my first plant at a local plant sale venue this spring. I have it, so far, in a one gallon pot. It is making some good progress. While I'm waiting for mine to get big enough to plant out & fruit, I did just get a package of dried fruit at our local Natural Grocers. They are on the tart side, but pretty good. The health benefits are great according to the flyer at the store. Looking Forward to tasting them fresh!

All about goji berries.

http://altmedicine.about.com/od/completeazindex/a/goji.htm

As for side effects, I guess the message is, like most nutrients you take to get healthier, enough is enough, and too much is too much!

I just found one of my gojis with the leaves nearly all stripped off my insects. I guess Ill find out who did it, if I find some monster insects out there.

Eastern lubbers?
