(Scarlet Wolfberry) is a Chinese native perennial shrub with slender stems growing up to 6.5-13 feet high if not pruned. From June to September, the shrub is decorated with pale violet, fragrant flowers. fruits will then appear till first frost and is rich in vitamins, trace elements, antioxidants, amino acids, and essential fatty acids. Traditionally, this super-fruit has been used to help improve eyesight, inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol, regulate the digestive system, to reduce inflammation, and is said to slow the aging process. Naturally drought tolerant, highly disease and insect resistant, and tolerates temps down to -18 F. The tender fruit appears in two years, and a mature plant can produce almost 7 lbs of berries under good conditions by the third year. Add the fruit to tonic, soups, rice or herbal tea. The tender shoots and leaves are used as a leaf vegetable and are cooked 15 minutes in soup. May interfere with blood thinners and other medications metabolized by the liver.

What are the pros? Hard to kill, easy tending

What are the cons? Needs support for strong winds

Review:

So far so good, we have had 4 successful germinations from 5 seeds, 1 being 2 months late and 1 successfully murdered by the cat! We planted these far too early for our climate with little light and they grew up to the ceiling searching for light. We chopped them back to about a foot in the spring and let them grow new stronger shoots before putting them outside. When you put them out, they will probably lose most of their leaves and look a bit dead for a while. Don't panic! Ours sprouted new branches at EVERY spot where it had lost a leaf and started 3 new sprouts at the base. This thing is hard to kill it seems! I would recommend you to cut back the plant to a smaller size every month or two while it is young to encourage the roots and promote vigorous growth. I haven't yet tasted the fruit but i highly recommend this plant for it's vigor. But watch out if you have a cat! They love the young and tender leaves (unless it's just our cat being strange).
