Also known as Goji Berry, this Chinese native is an attractive, small shrub which grows to about 6 ft. in height. Light purple, bell-shaped flowers bloom in May and can continue through the summer. Flowers are followed by red berries that ripen continually from mid-summer to late fall. In China the fruit is eaten fresh and is also dried like raisins and used in many dishes. Wolfberries are pleasantly sweet and rich in flavor, and are among the highest in anti-oxidants, have more carotene than carrots, and contain all essential amino acids and many minerals.
