Anyone grow black goji berry?

This species like similar species seems to have many healing properties. Do you all think it has some commercial potential, or selling potential for the plants?

Yes I grow them. Still wait for fruiting... They are interesting. When you put the dry berry to the water, it stay blue at first then violet. Fruits are rich in antioxidants.

Where did you get seeds?

Yeah! They'd make a beautiful tea. I would expect it to prefer a climate similar to that of the regular goji. Don't know if they are used fresh or in cereals like red goji.

Many sellers in Europe offers them. I bought them from Italy . They are long viable seeds.

They can withstand more drouhgt than regular goji. Very easy to keep plant... I havent an opportunity to taste them so I dont know. May be this year? :)

Just got these seeds from Germany via eBay.  As a general rule, don't order seeds from china.

That's good to hear! Yeah, ordering seeds from China is a terrible idea. Its ironic, because I'm pretty sure goji originated in China. :o

Tradewinds fruits sells the seeds now. They have a lot of seeds that are hard to find.

I ordered some from http://www.plant-world-seeds.com/store/view_seed_item/5539?itemname=GOJI+BERRY+BLACK+PEARLS

I had nearly full germination in January but they seem much more delicate plants then normal goji. Out of 20 seedling only 7 survived to be potted up to 1 gallon pots.
