Lifeberry® produces extra-sweet Goji berries. Easy to grow but will require staking to gain full access to the nutrient-rich fruit. Goji is a sprawling shrub with long, flexible canes and clusters of small, grey-green leaves. The flowers are a brilliant royal purple and they appear in late spring/early summer along the length of the new wood. They give way to juicy, bright red fruits that resemble small peppers. They grow sweeter as they mature on the plant. Goji plants continue to flower and produce fruit through the first heavy frost. Goji does not require pruning to grow well and produce fruit. However, the plant is more manageable and easier to harvest when its horizontal branches are lightly prunedin late winter or early spring to encourage branching and the production of vigorous new growth. Full sun is best, but tolerates a bit of shade. Deciduous. A pollinator is not needed. The plants tolerate some drought once established, but for best fruit set and quality, water regularly.
