Is Southern California too hot for the plant?

I live in the desert of Southern California, would it be too much sun and too hot for the plant.? And what is the difference between this Big Goji berry and the other Goji berry plant?
Asked by: AW
Hi AW, I'm not positive, but I'm in Southern Nevada and apparently they can be grown here. There's even a commercial farm starting up here. One of our online gardening sites, has a contributor who says: "Another fruit that grows naturally in southwestern deserts is the Wolfberry. The Goji berry of China is a wolfberry, the world's most nutrious fruits. Very easy to grow in hot poor soils. They form bushes to about 6', slow growing, deciduous in drought. 10 varieties in AZ and more thruout the southwest and Americas." We will see how well they produce fruit.

Can I grow in container?

Would this shrub thrive in a container? If yes, when will it bear fruit? Let's say I order and buy one now mid June? Thanks!
Asked by: Lara1
Hi Lara1, The Big Lifeberry Goji Berry Lycium gets very large, with a mature height of 10-12 feet and a spread of 5-7 feet. It can be grown in a container just be sure to choose one large enough – it should be at least 18” in diameter and have a drainage hole. The container should also be weatherproof so that it can remain outside. Staking is recommended for maximum berries. Goji berries begin to ripen in early summer. They should be plucked off by hand when they are brilliant red and taste sweet. They come off the plant easily, without the need for pruners or a knife. If you have any questions please call our hotline at (734) 654- 7485. Best regards, Fallon

Are these the same plants grown commercially to harvest the berries? Are leaves edible?

My mother used to make soup with goji leaves which are supposed to be good for the eyes. They can be cooked like spinach. What is the difference between the gallon size and the quart size plants? Are they the same plant but just different in size? Any difference in caring for the plants?
Asked by: EL
Hi EL, The leaves and berries are edible on the Goji berry shrub. The gallon size and quart size are the same plant, but the gallon size is a little older and more established than the quart size, so it will just be a little bigger. There is no different in caring for the plants despite their difference in container size. We recommend watering and fertilizing your plant well to see the best growth possible. If you have any additional questions, feel free to call our hotline at (734) 654-7485. Thanks, Hailee

Big Lifeberry Goji berry (Lycium) Purple Flowers and Red Fruit, 1 Gal. is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend Well established plant that was mostly bare but had some leaves and even a few berries still on it when it arrived. It lost the few leaves it had almost immediately, but it has been progressing rather quickly over the past four weeks and there are even little sprouts coming out of the base of the stem and roots. It will require transplanting within the next 2 weeks because I can see the roots coming out of the bottom. I read that you should only transplant it in the next size up container/pot, not a giant pot or you run the risk of it dying and also that less water is better than more. I wish I would have purchased two! (The pics I I included were just taken now for this review. So keep in mind that I have had the plant for a month now. Unfortunately, I did not take a pic of it when it arrived, but just imagine the plant without any leaves and that's what it looked like :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from unique plant The plant came in good shape after shipping this time of year. I know about the health qualities of this plant. That is why I wanted it. I also like to grow plants that are not of the usual type. I wish it didn't take so long to produce fruit. When it finally does I am sure I will enjoy them. I would like to have gotten a plant that has more maturity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely goji berry When i recieved my two plants i was very happy that they had berries on them and i mean full of them! I planted them a few weeks now but its cooling off here. But im sure they will be happy and so will i. They arrived prompt and nicely packaged. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vibrant Green Bush This Lifeberry Goji Berry Lycium arrived well-packaged and vibrant! It is fully alive with lots of bright green, beautiful foliage. Right now I have it in a large pot, but I'm planning to plant it outside. It looks beautiful as a decorative plant, but I also look forward to eating the red goji berries. So far it's another winner from Proven Winners!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Tough and Hardy Like the title, this looks tough and hardy. The leaves were still a strong green color even after being shipped in a box and it didn't spill out all the potting soil after shipment. Nothing special about planting, just dig a hole, feels like it was full grown to a point where it is sturdy enough. I got this planted against on the north side of a short block wall where it will get some shade in the summer. Hopefully, over time, this will last. I live in a fairly dry climate and I have a tough time growing plants that often times take a lot of neglect. Keeping my fingers crossed, but I like it a lot already and that's why I gave it the tile, I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goji Berry Beautiful nice sized plant. Received this plant in great shape. It is a nice size and a pretty bush. They can get large and if you have more than one you can make a hedge. The berry is so good for you and taste very good. The fruit has antioxidants in them that every body needs. I plan to make jam or jelly out of the fruit. It can also be juiced. I recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy We wanted to try the goji berry plant to add another berry to our farm, we bought 4 plants for a test plot, the plants have over achieved, we have berries on one plant and the other 3 have grown about a foot taller, they are healthy & doing great, we will add additional goji berry plants to our farm, they are a little pricey if you are going to have a large plot, but they are good plants, easy to plant, we put tomato cages around them for protection until they get established, and to keep deer, and rabbits from eating them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from more fruit When plant arrived the first thing I noticed was the packaging, thick box with warning labels (don not tip, live plant). When I opened box the plant looked a little dry water it every other day for a week and it came back to life. After two weeks it was ready to plant. after a couple of weeks in the ground it was green and growing vertically. Hopefully next year I'll have fruit.
