Shanghai Express Goji berry seeds for organic growing
Full planting instructions included
Goji berries have had lots of media attention in recent years, and are thought to be a "superfood." They are certainly rich in nutrients, being packed with vitamins and minerals as well as amino acids and essential fatty acids. Five carotenoids are found in Goji berries: beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, lutein, lycopene, and cryptoxanthin. All of these are reputed to contribute to overall health and disease resistance in humans. Even the leaves of the Goji plant are edible and nutritious! In its third year of growth, a Goji plant can produce over 6« lbs of fruit. Shanghai Express is a wonderful variety of Lycium barbarum that grows well in northern latitudes. Plants are extremely cold hardy to -20øC (-4øF), but should be mulched if extreme weather is expected. The berries can be frozen or dried - drying seems to maintain the best flavour. Sow indoors about 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost. That's early to mid-February on the coast. It's important to cultivate strong seedlings, so once the seeds sprout, use generous artificial light.
