Your order placed now will be collected, carefully packaged and shipped as bare root plants as soon as we enter dormancy this fall. This normally begins mid to late October and into early November. We’ll email you shipping confirmation and tracking details as soon as they ship! Since our nursery is outdoors and based on nature our timing is dependent on the weather.

TIP: Use the tags above to help filter our offerings by characteristic (ie. click on ‘fruit’ to find any fruit bearing plants we offer, etc.) As we add more and more it is a helpful way to find a plant to fit your goals…

Goji Berry

from 8.00

Lycium Barbarum
Goji berries, those small dried red fruits you find in health food stores.  Yes, you can grow them in your backyard in zones 3-8!  Actually, we've found these plants to be some of the most vigorous, rampant, easy to propagate plants we've met, and that says a lot considering the plants we work with.

Goji berry plants grow in somewhat crazy arcs of woody branches reaching in all sorts of directions.  We've read you can train them to a trellis for ease of harvest and to control their random growth patterns and we plan to do that moving forward.  These plants can be propagated easily from cuttings, rootlets, tip layers, seeds, you name it.  

 So far, we haven't found a way to really enjoy the fresh fruits as a snack, but to be honest we haven't dried them down to experience them in a way like at the health food store.  Our main interest is moving towards the leaves and young shoots as an incredibly nutritious and worthwhile perennial vegetable.
This beautiful, perennial member of the solanaceous family puts on lovely little purple flowers adored by bees for an extended time in the growing season, grows incredibly fast and produces massive amounts of fruits.  It's a very worthwhile addition to your permaculture food forest.  Look up 'goji berry nutrition profile' to see why you may want to grow this plant!
The goji we offer are propagated from a variety called 'phoenix tears'.  We offer 'small' and 'larger' options.  Small plants are rooted plants with less than 8" of top growth, but ready to take off.  Larger are 8" or taller and thoroughly rooted plants.


They seem to top out around 5-6' tall and could be shaped quite a bit with a support system.

Site Preference:
Prefers full sun and rich soil, but we've seen them tolerate other situations.
