Plant Information

Goji Berries are produced on large shrubs with long, flexible canes. Rich purple blooms in late spring give way to small, bright-red fruits. As the season goes on, the berries sweeten and will produce fruit all the way until frost.

How to Grow:This shrub thrives in full sun and tolerates any well-draining soil. Although pruning is not necessary for fruit to emerge, we recommend lightly pruning horizontal branches to encourage new growth. The Goji Berries begin to ripen in early summer and we recommend hand-picking when they are a bright-red color and sweet to the taste. They are easy to plucked off and can be harvested by hand. We recommend fertilizing with an organic mixture in early spring, just as new growth begins.

        Comments about American Meadows Goji Berry Firecracker:

        I wanted to try this but due to my neglect of planting asap and keeping them watered well it was a failure. Not AM issue but mine. Keeping it honest!

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
