It will take 2-3 years before I have any goji berries on my plant?
D. N on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If there are berries that are growing any earlier, my research says to remove them for the long-term yield. My plants are healthy-looking however, and I am quite excited for the harvest!
Is there a way to tell the difference between Vermillion Sunset and Big/Sweet Life berry varieties? I forgot to label properly after planting out. They are all doing great though.
Gary P on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In my experience, Vermilion Sunset's leaves are smaller when they first come on after dormancy, but the fruit is more or less the same size as Sweet Lifeberry. Big Lifeberry's fruit is larger, so that one should be easy enough to distinguish once the plants are fruiting.

nice plant
I potted it up into a one gallon pot for the winter. Now it is full of new growth and I hope to get some berries. Very healthy and the shipping packaging was great.

Good growth
Plant was of good size and following growing season produced a very large bush. Can't wait for fruit to bear

Beautiful plant but hasn't set fruit yet.
I purchased in May of 2014. The plant grew well and survived the winter. 2015, the plant grew HUGE and was full of flowers, but no fruit set. I have it in strong morning sun - 5-6 hours. I am not the greatest at watering :( so maybe this is my problem. I will water more this spring. I'm hoping to have fruit this year and if not, maybe move to full sun location.

Waiting to see if Goji made it.
This Goji was shipped in pretty rough shape as did the honey berries but all came back nicely. Stark Tre-Pep was used to fertilize all. I feel that decent growth was made during the first season. Now it's May 12th and waiting to see if it survived the first zone 4b winter.
