Goji Berry, 'Dynamite'
Item GJ101

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!
This 'Superfruit' is juicy and sweet when eaten fresh, or can be dried or frozen! Very high in antioxidants! Goji Berry 'Dynamite' has brilliant-red, thornless berries. This is an easy-to-grow shrub. It grows upright, with an arching habit. It may take an additional year for full fruit production. The blooms are white/purple in early summer and then turn into scarlet red fruit in the fall. Self-pollinating. Long flexible canes of gray-green foliage. Drought tolerant. Prefers rich moist well-drained soil. Plant in sun or part shade. Flowering typically begins in the second year with maximum fruit production in the 4th or 5th year.

Also called, the Wolfberry, Lycium barbarum or Goji berry, resembles a red raisin when dried. Members of the Boxthorn family, Goji Berries are native to Southeast Europe and Asia and are related to the nightshade plants: potato, tomato, eggplant, tobacco and chili pepper. Goji leaves and root bark are used in traditional Chinese medicine. Goji berries are rich sources of antioxidants, carotenoids, lutein, zeaxanthin, iron, zinc, selenium, essential fatty acids and fiber as well as respectable amounts of protein. They've earned superfood status in the health food industry. Goji berries have not been approved to prevent or treat any disease.

Hardiness: Zones 3-8 Exposure: Full to Part Sun

Foliage: Green Height: 60-84" Spacing: 60-84"

Harvest: Early Summer to Frost Fruit: Brilliant-Red Berries

Soil: Adaptable Botanical Name: Lycium barbarum 'Dynamite'

Pests: It's highly disease resistant and rarely bothered by insects. Even deer and rabbits leave it alone. There is no need for any chemicals or sprays.

Notes: They're naturally drought tolerant and like well draining soil. Does not like wet roots. Train against a sunny wall for improved fruiting. Trim out diseased or damaged leaves and stems. Thrives in zones 3-8, tolerating temps down to -18 F. Does well in the dry west or humid east. Likes containers or the ground. Goji will grow in sun or partial shade, but your harvest will be greater with more sun. Your berries get sweeter the longer you leave them on the bush and will be much tastier than what you buy in the store. Eat them fresh, juice them, freeze them or dry them. Most people prefer to eat their berries like raisins. Grow several plants and enjoy healthy Goji berries all year.

How to Grow & Planting instructions: Dig hole two times width of pot. Set top of root ball even with ground level. Combine planting mix and soil. Fill to ground level and tamp down firmly. Water to settle soil. Add layer of mulch to retain moisture and discourage weeds. Water regularly for the first year, then as needed once established.
