Indigo Herbs Goji Berries come from plants grown in rich, river-fed soil. The plantation has about 3,000 Goji trees per hectare and each are grown much like a vine horizontally and to a height of around one metre. Harvest begins in June and will last until November where each tree will typically produce around 1 KG of fruit. After picking, the berries are screened and undesirable individuals are thrown out. The Goji is then laid out on big wooden boards to dry. The dried Goji berry resembles a small dried raisin and can be stored for about a year without loss of colour, taste or high nutrient profile.
Not advisable for those taking blood thinning agent walfarin.
Can cause diarrhoea and skin irritation if taken in excess. Goji berries have no toxicity, but should be avoided if one has a spleen deficiency.
