Black Goji or wolfberryBy Yuriy75 GFDL, CC BY 3.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Lycium Ruthenicum

Close relative of the Red Goji, the Black Goji is native to China where is has been used extensively in Chinese Medicine for centuries. It is high in Vitamins A, E, C, Anthocyanins, and essentially fatty acids. Berries are eaten either fresh or dried, and can be added to water to dye this a deep, rich shade of royal blue. A handful of dried berries is sufficient to dye 2L of liquid very effectively. Shrub plant ( up to a maximum of 2M) with sparse foliage not unlike Rosemary in appearance, that will thrive in very poor, low nutrient and even saline affected soils. Good drainage and full sun position necessary.
Safety Warning: Although no cases of Toxicity have been reported with respect to L. Ruthenicum, it is nonetheless a member of the nightshade family (Solanacea) which does include many toxic members. Care should thus be taken to not consume leaves, or under ripe berries.
