The Chinese Wolfberry pods were planted on 10 February 2008. Due to ignorance the whole pod was planted, but it is only necessary to plant one seed per plant. They were thinned and the stronger plant will be kept as they get larger. Germination was about 10 days and it appears maybe planting the pod is a good idea, since the germination was probably 100%. The plant is a perennial. Fruit production is in the third and fourth year.

There is an excellent place to grow them in my garden, so it will be interesting to see if they thrive in my Zone 5.

There are three plants in the garden. A rabbit has eaten the tip off two of the plants, but it seems to aid bushing of the plant. I will eventually get rid of this one rabbit, but he is fast and avoids Neena, and myself, since there is now so much vegetation in which to hide.

The largest of my three plants is growing well.

Here is some information about the plant. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfberry

Very very interesting.

I;d say this would be worthwhile for me to try this

I wonder if this could be bought in a health food store and wonder how long it would take for me to see a difference in my health
