Goji Seeds

Anyone wanting to grow Goji's. I bought some dried berries at the bulk store and cleaned the seeds and planted them and they are beginning to grow.

I only bought a couple of berries and I peeled them and separated the seed and let it really dry, then I put them in an envelope and in the fridge for a few weeks until I was ready to plant. I got the idea from you and did it because I saw that Dominion Seed catalogue has a package of them for $9. They germinated in about l week. Just looked at them now before I post this and it looks like pretty well all the seeds germinated. Try again.

I've started some, bought the Goji berries from a health food store. Apparently Lycium barbarum not Lycium chinese is the one you want to grow. I just soaked a couple of squished berries in water, collect the seed and sprouted them in damp paper towel. Lots of seed from just two berries and I think every one of the germinated.

I was trying to find the difference between the two Goji berry plants mentioned in aftermidnight's post but they seem to be the same plant. Let me know if I am wrong. Betty

I've been told when looking for info on these berries Lycium barbarum is the more nutritious of the two. I have a couple of small plants growing in the greenhouse, hope to plant them out this spring.
