Do these berries act like blackberries and raspberries by spreading underground and popping up somewhere else?
Mona S on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Mona,
well to answer your question yes and no. Yes, because eventually the goji berries i have grown will spread new shoots close to the stem. No, because it is not as invasive and doesnt spread as fast. I like to use a tomato cage or trellis to support the vertical growth and cut back new shoots to develop a stronger stalk.
Is it possible for Goji to cross-pollinate with a non-related plant? One of my gojis is producing berries and tastes like peppers. I do have peppers planted close by. Thnx.
Christina H on Jul 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They wouldn't cross pollinate and, even if they did, the results would be in the seeds not the fruit. Both capsicum (peppers) and gojis are in the Solanaceae (nightshade) family, so what you're picking up may simply be some similarities in flavor. I've eaten gojis fresh that tasted a little like tomatoes and a little like peppers. Gojis take on their own sweet, distinct taste when dried though!

Goji Berry??
I really meant to order a couple of current bushes, but they were sold out, so I ordered goji berries instead, not knowing anything about them except what I read in the catalog. What a delight when they started bearing sweet little red fruits the first summer! This is their second season, and both bushes are thriving and healthy ~ ready once again, to provide delightful snacks! I would highly recommend these to anyone.

Very high success rate plant
It's been barely a week after I've transplanted this goji plant into a bigger pot that I've made for it and it's already flowering. Very pleased with this purchase. Can't wait until this plant begins to fruit

Strong Goji
Little plant was planted just over two months ago.
It got severely sunburned within the first couple weeks, due to our crazy weather.
I thought I almost lost it, but now it's showing how strong it can be.
It's already blooming and has three little berries forming on it.

Mixed results
I ordered one of these and then later ordered a collection with another of these and a different variety. When the first of the two arrived it was very disappointing. All of the leaves had turned yellow and fallen off of the plant in the box and it was just sad little twigs. I have tried to get it to come back, so far nothing. The second one arrived and was MUCH better. It had leaves (yay!) and even some very pretty light purple blooms on it. So, mixed results for this, though I really hope I can get the first one to come back.
