Latin Name: Lycium spp.
History: The goji berry has been a highly regarded health berry in China for thousands of years. However, it hasn’t been until the last century or so that the rest of the world has even heard about the berry.
Farming and Harvesting: Coming from a perennial plant, goji berries have become highly cultivated, especially in Asia. It is worth noting that goji berries have been continually noticed by the FDA to have high levels of pesticide residue and fungicide residue, making organic goji especially important.
Culinary Application: rice congee, almond jelly, tonic soup, herbal tea, wine
