Goji berry is a vine-like,
multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub with sprawling branches that typically grows to
3 to 6 feet tall. Occasional thorns appear on the stems. It is native to
slopes, roadsides, disturbed areas and wastelands in Southern China. Ovate,
rhombic, elliptic or lanceolate leaves 1 to 3 inches long are bright green.
Small, tubular, pale purple to lavender flowers bloom in spring on stalks
rising from the leaf axils. Bright red berries (Goji berries) are about 7/8
inch long and mature in fall. Ripe berries are edible (sweet licorice flavor).
Berries (fresh or dried), young shoots and leaves are used in oriental cooking.
Berries are used to make an herbal tea. Berries are dried for herbal use. China
reportedly produces over 5 million kilograms of dried fruit per year. This is a
long time medicinal plant (leaves, roots and berries) in China.
