Goji Berry plants, also called Wolfberry, are drought tolerant and prefer well-draining soil. They do best in USDA zones 5 - 9, tolerating temps down to -10 F, and will flourish well in the dry west or humid east.
If you're outside of zones 5 - 9, you can still grow these very popular berries by planting them in containers and bringing them inside when the temperatures drop.
Goji berry plants will grow in the sun or partial shade, but your harvest will be greater with more sun. When planting outside in your garden, place your Gojis every 4 ft.
They grow into vine bushes to the point some gardeners will even plant them on trellises. A mature wolfberry plant will produce almost 7 lbs of berries under good conditions.
