Has anyone here tried Goji berries? It is a native to China that has some following here in the US. It is said to help prevent cancers, lower chlosteral, and help regulate blood pressure, and diabetes.
WebMd has some info on it, I'll post a link when I get to my computer later.

I've heard of them, but haven't really done any research on them yet. I'm looking forward to seeing what info you find.

Well here are a couple links from sources I trust to be accurate:

http://www.webmd.com/balance/goji-berries-health-benefits-and-side-effects

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfberry

In this case they seem to be at odds with one another. So here is a randomly selected third link that is not devoted to sales

http://livingawholelife.blogspot.com/2009/09/goji-berries-health-benefits-and-side.html

Plants are available from Gurney's seed and nursery

http://gurneys.com/goji-berry/p/75314/

I am thinking about growing some.

We pre-mix our own cereal and add Goji berries because they are so very good for you.

I'd say a bit of both, sweet and a very little bit tart. Somewhere between a raisin and a cranberry, maybe? To be honest, the taste is nothing spectacularly special but we want them more for their health benefits. They help with your circulation for one thing.

Reviving this cause it's time to start getting my orders together.

Growing Goji berry plants looks pretty straight forward, and since I am in USDA Zone 6 should have no problems with the weather, and the soil where I want these to grow has a ph close to the range recommended.

http://gurneys.com/goji-berry/p/75314/
. With no known pest or disease problems and high tolerance to drought, once established, the Goji shrub is an easy plant to grow.

http://blog.gardenharvestsupply.com/2011/05/20/how-to-grow-goji-berry-plants/
The Lycium barbarum variety of Gogi Berry Plants are a perennial in zones 3 to 10, they are actually quite remarkably heat and cold tolerant. Goji plants are also deciduous, which just means that they drop their leaves every year, usually once the first frost hits.

Goji Berry plants are very adaptable, but for the very best results, test your soil, and then adjust the pH to between 6.8 – 8.1. You can add lime to raise the pH if necessary or aluminum sulfate to lower it.
