The Phoenix Tears Goji Berry plant has highly nutritious, deep orange-colored fruit. Also known as a Wolfberry vine, this unique fruit is native to Asia and is praised today for being packed with protein, antioxidants, as well as having higher carotene levels than a carrot.

Light purple, bell-shaped flowers bloom in May and continue throughout the summer. These jellybean-shaped fruits ripen over a long period in mid-summer, with up to four weeks of harvest. Phoenix Tears Goji berries have a sweet flavor with a slight acidity. This super food is often dried, canned, or used in smoothies.

The Phoenix Tears Goji is a self-fertile plant that is cold and drought tolerant. It prefers warm summer days and cool nights, and neutral or somewhat alkaline soil. This multi-stemmed shrub grows to 5 to 6 feet tall and 5 feet wide and if left untrimmed could grow even taller. Goji Berry plants make a beautiful fountain-shaped bush when trained through a simple cage.

While Goji berry plants are prized for their delicious berries and health benefits, it’s important to note that they can be considered invasive – or at least aggressive growers, in certain regions of the United States. To ensure responsible cultivation, we recommend checking with your local agricultural extension office or gardening center for guidance on planting and maintaining Goji berries in your area.

With proper care and attention, you can enjoy the bounty of these nutritious fruits while minimizing their potential to spread beyond your intended garden space.
