Product Description
Absolutely packed with crucial vitamins and antioxidants, it's easy to see why many call the Goji Berry a super fruit! This wondrous little gem offers incredible immune-boosting qualities in a convenient, bright red berry. Popular in China for centuries, the large 1/2 to 1" berries have a sweet flavor that falls between a cherry and a cranberry. Eat them raw, dried, in smoothies, salads or in a variety of dishes-just make sure you eat them! This berry's one nutritional powerhouse you don't want to miss! Often referred to in health stores as the Tibetan or Himalayan Goji Berry. Extremely nutritionally dense, high antioxidant properties. Can be eaten raw, dried, made into juice, wine, herbal tea. When dried they can be eaten as a healthy snack similar to raisins. They have a taste which has been described as having an accent of tomato, similar to dates, dried cranberries or raisins, but drier, more tart, less sweet and with an herbal scent. Fresh berries are juicy and sweet.
