Goji Berry

Description
Claimed to enhance the immune system, improve eyesight and circulation, and protect the liver, Goji Berries are truly a superfood. Small clusters of white-to-lilac funnel-shaped blooms make way for bright orange-red, 1/2" to 1" berries in late spring through late fall. The fruit has a slightly sweet, mildly tangy flavor and can be eaten fresh, made into juice, wine or herbal tea, or dried and enjoyed as a snack similar to raisins. Lycium barbarum
