Got my Goji seeds today

They are kind of red, maybe stained from the berry. I planted 9 seeds. The amount of nutrients they have is incredible. It will be so great to just pick some fresh off of my tree. Until a couple of years from now, have to be satisfied with dried Goji berry.

Luckily you can buy some here.

I just want to post that if you buy some dried goji berries, I believe you have the seed. I was interested in growing some and read in a catalog that an order for goji seeds consisted of a number of dried berries. I carefully opened up one of my largest dried organic himalayan-sourced goji berries and it had lots of seeds. Planted 6 - all germinated - and they're out in the sunshine now, about an inch tall. Another catalog, which sells the plants, says they should be self-fertile. So I reckon I probably have my desired plants, nd I want anyone else interested in growing them to know how simply and inexpensively they can get their seeds. A local natural food store here sells dried gojis in bulk, so if you find a similar outlet with gojis you like, you can have your seeds for a few cents. The two berries I opened each contained at least a dozen good seeds.

Hi Pumacreek thanks for you interesting post. You stated that there was a natural food store here that sells dried gojis in bulk, where would that be, and would it be possible for you to give me the address.
Kind regards, dreamweaver

do you mean just put a goji seed (the one you buy dried to eat) under the soil?

I knew about goji seeds recently and was so amazed withnb the nutrituinal description that I found this blog when looking for more information...

visit my website for accurate goji information. It is OK to extract seeds from dried goji berries bought from grocery but it is better to start from a good cultivar.

I too purchased a pack of dried Goji berries from my local health store. I opened one berry to find a heap of seeds. I planted four seeds about one inch deep in multi-purpose compost and wow, 16 days later I have a tiny shoot with two tiny leafs. Trouble is that I'm not sure how to treat them.
Anyone out there to give me some advice??
Good Luck to all Goji growers!!

Goji is used by Chinese herbalist, either alone or combination with other herbs, for relieving cough or wheezing.
