goji berry    (Posted Fri, Dec 11 '09 at 12:32 UTC)

As one of the most nutritious berries in human's diet, goji is widely used in medicine, food/drink, and cosmetics products. Goji is natively grown in China but more and more herb and fruit farms are testing grow it here in North America. I personally think growing goji will become one of the most profitable ag-business in near future. Please visit our website go-goji.com for information on goji cultivars, cultivation and field management. Working with our Chinese partners we provide the best information on growing goji in North America.

But, IF they want Goji Berry plants they can contact me here on local harvest and then grow their own plants and berries.
I imported my seed from China from a friend who grows on a farm
all natural.
I have seedlings in pots now and growing more all the time.

How hardy are goji plants. Will they work in Ohio (zone 5)?

Goji berries are rich in antioxidants, particularly carotenoids such as beta-carotene and zeaxanthin. One of zeaxanthin's key roles is to protect the retina of the eye by absorbing blue light and acting as an antioxidant. In fact, increased intake of foods containing zeathanthin may decrease the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in people over the age of 65.

Goji can grow in northern latitudes of USA. Actually I think the best place to grow goji are the inner land of WA, OR, northern CA. I mentioned this when I was interviewed by LA Times journalist last spring (http://articles.latimes.com/2009/aug/05/food/fo-goji5)
YOu can see more goji growing information on my website go-goji.com

Yes Goji is growing! My farm in Spanish Springs Nevada is making a huge splash into the market. www.lgdfarms.com
I have learned the Goji over the last decade. I have no partners in China....it's all USA made....the Goji were brought to the USA over 150 years ago by Chinese workers...the Goji are considered weeds in Montana....
Problems with Goji...they need a specific growing climate and soil....that is to product properly. You will get them to grow...and possible berries for a year or two...but then they stop. Failure rate is high with Goji. Climate an soil is very important for Goji. They are delicate, special plants.....and be careful of any China Goji...they are sprayed before entering the USA...no matter what they say...China also picks the Goji early...dry them in chambers (not sun dried) and shipped off....early picks don't produce the needed nutrients in the Goji...and they taste like gummy green gunk...once you try a Goji picked fresh off the plant...you will never buy China Goji ever again!
