The black sheep of the Goji family! With that dark colour though, the berries somehow have even more antioxidants packed into them in the form of oligomeric proanthocyandins (OPCs). OPCs are a specific component also found in blueberries, red wine and grape seeds that really knocks the socks off cancer organisms. Black Goji plants are significantly less vigorous than the regular orange varieties and remain quite compact and fine stemmed, maturing at approx. 30-60 cm (1-2') high and wide. (Lycium ruthenicum)
