Me and everyone else ate them fresh. No one around these parts ever saw them before. They are really good with a certain taste all their own. We will more than likely have a truck load next fall so we are preparing to can them. Wolfjelly, Gojelly :) If you are going to pot yours, protect the roots with shade. Keep them cool.

I have just bought my first Goji plant. I can see from your posting that I will need to give it space. What did you do with 5 gallons of Goji berries?

Hey Rae,
I did grow the Wolfberries. I started them very early in my old greenhouse in potting soil. Kept them real warm and moist all the time. Transplanted them June 1st and did normal feeding and watering. They reached 5 feet tall by October 1st.! They are really narley Bush/Vines. They spread all over. You can trim them and I will have to in Late winter. They are thorny too.
You want to be careful as there are two varieties being sold. I did some research on the net and found the name of the one that grows way up in Northern China. That's the one you want. I had all the info but my computer crashed a while back and I lost tons of info.
They are very hardy and would probably grow in CHI Towne. Out of 10 Bush/Vines, I got about 5 gallons for the first year. They are extremely healthy eating with lots of trace minerals. You could grow a few in big pots.

Stillcookin, did you grow those? If so, how? I've read that Wolfberries are VERY healthy!
