Jostaberry DK - How to Grow Practically Everything © 2010 Dorling Kindersley LimitedThe result of a cross between black currant and gooseberry, the jostaberry plant is extremely vigorous, so give it plenty of room. The fruit makes delicious jam.

Goji plants prefer fertile, well-drained soil in a sunny spot. When planting, incorporate lots of well-rotted organic matter, such as manure, and keep them well watered for the first year. Flowering occurs in late spring and summer, but significant fruit production doesn't happen till the third year after planting.

There are two species of goji: Lycium barbarum, USDA Zones 6B to 9, and Lycium chinense, USDA Zones 4b to 9b.
