HAVE: goji berry plants Lycium barbarum

luckynes13(6a)June 4, 2011

Chinese culinary and medicinal herb/bush. Used to strengthen muscles and bone, liver function, to restore "vital essences," and to improve vision. Increases white blood cell counts, and stimulates tissue development. Young leaves and shoots are popular as cooked greens in Canton. Sweet berries are eaten raw as a snack or added to soups and stews.

Pick up only

It sounds like you have the actual plant or is it seeds you have and how many plants or seeds do you have. I don't have any seeds or plants to trade unfortunately but I am willing to pay for your plants or seeds you have.

Hi Nes,

I am interested in some of your goji plants if they are a good size . I would like to be able to harvest some goji this year if possible and the ones I got at the swap will be a good size next year but this year will be too tiny. Let me know what you might like in trade.

I see everyone seems to be ordering these from some place or other paying for something that is available at your local BULK BARN in the form of trail mix. I bought a handful for pennies , ate the trail mix and set aside a few berries. I opened them and planted the seeds inside. Amazingly a few took and I now have three fast growing bushes after only one season. I'm praying they will survive zone 5. Has anyone else done this?

The only thing with taking seeds from dried berries from places like Bulb Barn is the berries are not always naturally dried. If they were dried in an oven, that would reduce the seed viability to the point you might not get viable seed. Not saying it doesn't work, but it's no guarantee you will get anything growing. Another thing to consider is the berries might not have been grown in a similar climate so the seedlings may not be hardy. It wouldn't hurt to mulch them just in case.

I buy bunches of the stems from the supermarket in the early summer. I use the leaves and shoots for soup, then root the remaining stems. At a few dollars a pound you can get tons of cuttings. Within three weeks they are well rooted and sell relatively well. I usually transplant them, wait another week for new growth, then sell them in bulk to someone who retails potted plants. The plus to my method is I know the grower and know that the plants where the stems are harvested from are hardy to Ontario.

I know that there are at least two types of Gogi berry plants. One is for leaf eating mainly and the leaves are bigger than the other type which is mainly for the berries. I have both of them and they are both very fast growing and can be cut and propagate quickly. It produces many berries until it frost all summer.

Maybe this spring I will have some. I have some planted already. The seedlings do not like to be kept wet, if you are growing them.
