Goji Berry

Goji berries seem to be a hot topic in the USofA these days.  They have been grown for centuries in China and are recognized as one of the most (if not THE most) nutritious of berries.  They will also grow well in our mid-Missouri climate (it is reported, we'll see).  You can Google Goji Berry at this link to learn more about them before I can get in a first season with them to report on these pages.

Goji berries are a small shrub that grows about 6 feet tall and they like full sun.  We got potted plants from Stanley's Garden Center in St. James for $12 (see link under Local Resources tab).  I planted them on the SE and SW corner, respectively, of my garden shed where they will get the full sun they require and will beautify my shed in the process.
