Goji (Lycium barbarum) Also known as Wolfberry or Matrimony Vine. Native to Tibet, this ‘superfood’ can grow in almost any soil type, even depleted soils as long as it is well drained. The oblong bright orange-red fruit is most commonly dried, tasting like tart raisins, but they can also be eaten raw or added to soups and stews. The young leaves and shoots are popular in Cantonese stir-fries. In China it is sometimes referred to as the ‘plant of eternal life’ and in all fairness it does have amazing medicinal properties. The berries are packed with essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals which makes a potent elixir highly regarded as an immune system booster. Other claims include: improved vision, increased white blood cell counts, better liver function and stronger muscles and bones. An attractive 1.2-1.8 meter (4-6') tall shrub, gojis have small, light purple, bell-shaped flowers in spring. Later the arching branches are loaded with crimson-orange 2 cm (3/4”) berries. Potted

(Lycium ruthenicum)
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.
