Bigger Plants, More Berries, Years Sooner  

A superfood that's Super Easy! 
Goji Berries (Lycium barbarum) are used to treat a broad range of ailments and diseases. The superfood is packed with antioxidants, amino acids, Vitamins C, B and E, essential fatty acids - and are widely used to reduce inflammation.

Get Fruit Fast
Some Goji Berry plants take 3-5 Years longer to fruit than our trees.  That's because the majority of nurseries grow from seed, delaying the production of berries up to 5 years. We don't grow from seed. Your Gojis are started from cuttings taken from mature plants. So your Goji thinks it should be producing berries right away. This natural process is thousands of years old and is used by organic farms. It takes more work on our part... but you get better tasting berries, years sooner. And a plant you will be much happier with.

Grow Them Yourself Without the Chemicals.
Most Goji Berries come from China where they're often treated with chemicals that have been long banned in the US. They can turn an incredibly healthy food into something toxic.  This is one of the easiest plants to grow organically. It's highly disease resistant and rarely bothered by insects. Even deer and rabbits leave it alone. There is no need for any chemicals or sprays. Just plant it and pick.

Easy to Care For
Goji Berry plants are naturally drought tolerant and prefer well-draining soil. They thrive in the ground in zones 5-9, tolerating temps down to -10 F and will flourish well in the dry west or humid east. If you're outside of zones 5-9, you can still grow these berries.  Plant them in containers and bring them inside when the temperatures drop. Goji will grow in sun or partial shade, but your harvest will be greater with more sun. When planting outside, place your Gojis every 4 ft. They grow into viney bushes. Some customers grow them on a trellis. They are self-pollinating but do better with additional companions.

Eat Goji Berries All Year Long
Your berries get sweeter the longer you leave them on the bush and will be much tastier than what you buy in the store. Eat them fresh, juice them, freeze them or dry them on newspaper. Most people prefer to eat their berries like raisins. Grow several plants and enjoy healthy Goji Berries all throughout the year. Pick $175 worth of Berries each year from a single plant! A mature plant will produce almost 7 lbs of berries under good conditions. We don't know of any other fruit plant that has this incredible of a payback. Plus it continues to produce year after year.

Order Now
Your Goji from Fast Growing Trees arrives ready for explosive growth. Order now while larger sizes are still available.

Goji Berry Pollination

Goji Berry are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Goji Berry will drastically increase the size of your crop.

3 months after planting 4 of these in the high desert of NM, during a drought, my 94yo Dad had congestive heart failure followed by the death of his kidneys. We jumped in the car thinking we'd be gone for 2 weeks to a month. We returned 10 MONTHS LATER and found ALMOST everything (but established trees) dead. The ONE EXCEPTION was my FGT GOJI BERRIES!

I wouldn't recommend walking away for almost a year before any plant is established and I certainly didn't expect them to survive, but they did! They even grew and bushed out. No berries this year but we are not disappointed. We are thrilled with the hardiness of these bushes and are looking forward to good harvest next year after some care and watering! WE ARE TOTALLY IMPRESSED!

Pleased so far
Got the plant quickly. Put it in a commercial potting mix and plant didn't thrive for a month. Decided to add some crushed limestone to up the ph and that did the trick. Anyone else with this experience?
Bought several root stock from other suppliers and they were a flop. Buy from this outfit and you won't be disappointed.

I ordered two Goji plants. They arrived on August 28th and looked really poor with only a few leaves on each plant. Planted in larger pots and set them in the sun after four days under a grow lamp. It is now September 21st and they have recovered wonderfully. They are full of leaves and I can see three berries starting to grow. I am very satisfied with their progress.

Superfood in my backyard
I have had this bush for only a few months and it has grown a lot and (unexpectedly) produced a few berries the first summer. I expect lots of berries next summer. It is asy to care for and produces easy-to-pick fruit.

About the berries: I didn't care for the taste. We found them bitter. I don't know if that's because of the soil, the transplanting, or it's the normal taste. But I grow them because they are considered a superfood. They are small, like pills, so I just swallow them with water.

Dried Goji products are expensive, so having this fresh, wholesome superfood in my backyard is awesome.

Growing nicely
I am not really familiar with the Goji Berry and I am looking forward to it fruiting next year. It arrived very quickly and packing with my blueberry plants was out standing. Looked like they had just been dug up the same morning they arrived.

Fast Growing deserves 5 stars on all points in my book.

Great recovery!
When I received my goji berries, they looked poor with few leaves on them. (I ordered banana tree and miracle berries before and they both arrived in excellent condition) So, I called and sent a picture thinking my plant was dying. Without any problems, I was sent another order (free of charge of course). However, within a week, my first goji plant came to life and even produced beautiful purple flowers. So now I feel quite guilty, since I received the second plant for free. I will be planting them together in a pot next week and looking forward my beautiful harvest.
Thank you to Fast Growing Trees from another satisfied customer!

So far I like
I have bought 4 Goji Berry from 3 different places. I was going on price. Well the first 2 didn't do well. The 3 one from another company is doing well, but the one I got from Fast Growing Trees is twice the size and so far doing well. And I planted this one 3 months later than the other.
So far I don't want to rate the growth or Hardiness because it has not been in the grown long enough. But it looks healthy and doing well. I will have the two to compare with next year.

Was packaged well, with soil and pot. It arrived bearing fruit. We followed directions, and while its dropped most leaves after ~3 months, it still looks happy/healthy. We're looking forward to next year's harvests.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Goji Berry

Goji Berry  Planting Diretions

The Goji berry plant (also known as the Wolfberry) is a self-pollinating shrub with long, flexible canes and clusters of small, grey/green leaves. The flowers are a brilliant shade of royal purple and they appear in late spring to early summer. They give way to juicy, bright red fruits that resemble small grape tomatoes. They get sweeter as they mature on the plant. Goji plants continue to flower and produce fruit through the first heavy frost.

Choosing a location: Gojis do best in full sun but can tolerate a bit of shade and perform best in well draining soils with an acidity pH ranging from 6.8 to 8.1 they also do wonderfully when planted in pots.

Planting Directions (potted):
1) Prepare your container, which should be at least 2 pot sizes larger than what it arrived in. Your container or pot should have proper drainage holes in the bottom, so you may also want to provide a drain pan for the container to sit in. If your container doesn’t have drainage holes, you can easily add them with a drill.
2) To provide the best growing medium and drainage, mix about 1/3 sand with 2/3rds of your soil. Although any good potting soil will work. Fill the container and leave 2 to 3 inches at the top.
3) Dig a hole in the middle of the container and make sure that it’s a couple of inches deeper than the crown of the plant (where the roots meet the stem). Push loose soil back in with the roots until they lightly rest on the soil in the hole, and make sure the crown is level with the top of the soil.
4) Push the soil back in, filling around the roots and up to the crown, gently tamping as you go. Water well and add more soil around the plant if necessary and watering again to let the soil settle. Keep the soil around your Goji plant moist, but not overly wet, until you see new growth sprouting, usually in about 2-3 weeks.
5) Apply an inch or two of mulch in order to help with moisture retention (and because it looks nice). If you mulch, you will need to depend on touch to check soil moisture.

*Remember that plants in containers will feel the heat and cold more because their roots are in soil above the ground. Stay aware of your weather patterns. Provide adequate moisture when it is extremely hot and dry, as potted plants will usually dry out quicker.

Planting Directions (in ground): If you live in growing Zone 5 or warmer (where it will usually not get colder than -15 F) you can grow the Goji outdoors. When planting in the ground you can follow the exact same directions above, just be sure to choose an area that has access to a lot of sun, free of pesticides from lawn care and away from the road (dust and pollution can contaminate your plant). If planting more than one Goji it is not recommended to have them closer than 48 inches between plants. Carefully monitor your soil moisture, because it is critical for it to not dry out until you see new growth sprouting, which usually takes about two weeks.

Once the average daytime temperature drops below 50 degrees, your Goji plant will start going into its dormant state. It will stay dormant until springtime temperatures are above 50 degrees. If you live in an area that does not get that cold, keeping your plant pruned back to new growth is the key to keeping the berries coming.

Watering: Water the plants every day if it doesn’t rain for at least the first 30 days outdoors and then only water during sustained droughts afterward. The soil should absorb water, but also have good drainage. If your potted plants are outside during the warm season in colder climates, make sure they do not get saturated with too much rain and that the excess water is able to drain away. The plants will drown if they are soaked in water too long. It is important that you water the plants at the base, try to avoid getting water on the leaves since this will promote fungus. The best time to water as to avoid fungal disease is in the early morning.

Pruning: Gojis do not require pruning to grow well and produce fruit. However, you may find the plant is more manageable and easier to harvest when its lateral (horizontal) branches are lightly pruned to encourage branching and the production of vigorous new growth. Prune lightly in early spring, removing dead and badly placed shoots. If necessary, cut overlong stems back to a well-placed branch and remove some of the oldest wood. To restrict growth on plants in containers, cut new growth back by up to half in summer (however, this might reduce the yield).

Fertilizing: If you can get a hold of some compost, vermiculite, rotted manure, or other organic matter, this would be very beneficial. Do not use chemical fertilizers such as Miracle Grow to grow goji berries as this disrupts the soil and will only create more work for yourself. If you supply them with enough healthy, organic matter such as manure, they will not need chemical fertilizers.

Harvesting: Taste is your best indicator as to when your berries are ready. Goji berries should be plucked off by hand once they turn a brilliant shade of red and they taste sweet. It is best to harvest before the first frost because cold can diminish the flavor of the fruit. The berries can easily be dried, simply them in a single layer on some newspaper.

For centuries the Chinese have used parts of the goji plant for food or medicine. Use of stems and leaves is little known in the United States, but the highest concentrations of healthful antioxidants can be found in the leaves. Fruit in the health food market in the form of dried berries and juice is more familiar in the US.

Are these plants grown organically?
mbrewer22 on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can grow them organically. They like full sun after transplanting and allowed to recuperate in shade. They DO NOT like a lot of synthetic fertilizer - don’t even use it ! Use low nitrogen Organic fertilizer. The roots do not like to be waterlogged, so have excellent drainage. I use organic earthworm soil. In the winter, the leaves will dry up, but come storming back next spring.
