Goji Berry, Sweet Lifeberry PPAF is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fruiting nicely, but tastes pretty gross I bought 2 plants a year and half ago. They were very small, so put in a pot, with the plan to transplant when larger. That part has been great, the plants are large enough so they won't get lost in my landscape when transplanted, and was really excited to see flowers appear, and even got quite a few berries. The small red berries stayed on the plant really long. I tried quite a few over the course of several weeks. So this is the disappointing thing....the berries taste gross. Not sweet whatsoever. They taste the smell of stinky socks. Soooo disappointed. Also didn't realize they have thorns. They are still in the pots, with new growth already starting. If this is what they really taste like, I'm rethinking putting them in the ground. If I do, they will be for the birds. They also seem they could be invasive...I was surprised by the number of shoots growing around the original plant. Was really excited about this plant at first :-(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Plant I bought this plant around a year ago and I figured I'd make a review. I bought this plant from Burpee and another company to compare their plants and to see which is more successful. Burpee's grew better, looked better and even outproduced the other company by far. I didn't have much room so I put it in a pot and still had a ton of berries for its first year. Just be careful when harvesting, look up help to do this, if you harvest too early it will be the worst taste of your life, if you do it correctly its perfectly sweet,

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tiny tiny plant and no new growth These arrived teeny tiny and have had no growth at all. Needless to say, I am dissapointed. Not what I expect from my many Burpee purchases. Please be more transparent in your description of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardy, berries right away! Wonderful little plants started growing and flowering as soon as I planted them! One is literally covered in berries and the other is over two and a half feet tall already (also with berries) with absolutely no extra help from me. Love them and thinking of making a small hedge of these around the patio. Thank you, Burpee's, for the quality plants!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plant is barely holding on I bought this plant awhile ago and planted it where suggested and as instructed but it's most likely going to die. Not sure why - I was really looking forward to growing these berries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Berries in first summer! I bought a Goji start for a family member in Littleton, Colorado, at the end of May, and the plant started producing flowers and berries by mid-August. Very happy with purchase! This start arrived looking a little forlorn - leafless and not too green - but started growing very soon after planting, and has taken off well, to a sprawling ca. 2 ft diameter shrub by the end of its first growing season.
