Big Lifeberry® Goji Berry, Wolfberry, Matrimony Vine
Summer brings small purple star-shaped flowers that are born singly and in large clusters along the stems of the Goji Berry and are soon followed by the extra-large and highly nutritious bright red oblong berries in early fall that can be eaten fresh, juiced, or dried for later enjoyment.

Goji Berry has a vine-like to shrub-like habit and may eventually reach 12'H with support and is deciduous in winter. Provide it with a moist but moderately poor soil in a full sun location for the best fruit production. It has escaped outside of cultivation in most states.

Like the Tomato, the Goji Berry is a member of the Nightshade family, Solanaceae, so eating anything but the fruit could cause an allergic reaction if used improperly although in Asia the leaves, flowers, and root bark are all used medicinally.
