Goji Berry, Sweet Lifeberry PPAF is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Must've hated growing I got this and put it in early spring. Lovely soil and thought it was great growing spot. Arrived looking near dead and never came out of it. All leaves are completely gone now. Disappointed. Researched and tried everything to save it. Will find a LARGER one to plant from somewhere else and try again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from powerfull little plant that grew I bought this plant a year ago. When it arrived, it was very tiny; however, its roots were developing under the soil. This year, it really started to grow with lots of berries that are sweet/ sour/ tangy. I put them into smoothies. They are supposed to be power packed with vitamins

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Somewhat disappointed. It took nearly 2 weeks to receive my Goji Berry plant, was smaller than expected, had only two leaves left on plant, and I did not read anywhere when ordering than Goji Berriy plants have thorns. If I had known this ahead of time... I would not have purchased the plant. I believe it will survive....but the thorns were a real downside to the plant. I'm planting a thornless berry patch for my grandchildren and will not incorporate this into the garden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great plant Packed and shipped well. Took out of box and waited couple days before actually relocating in a big planter. First year of planting I had berries everywhere, very prolific producer. I was amazed. I had ordered another plant from another company that I had actually put in the ground and it took off and produced as well. Was surprised at the number of berries I had. I have ordered from burpee for years, and once in a while I will find that in the shipping (UPS or FEDEX), gets "rough" with the handling, but burpee does guarantee their plants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING Goji Berry Plant! When I received my Goji Berry Plant I had to set it aside. I ended up remembering 2 weeks later and when I pulled out the plant from it's packaging, I thought I Had killed it. I watered it immediately with water mixed with a fertilizer and put it in my window and it amazingly resurrected and is currently a robust and healthy plant! I don't know if it was the plants nature or the way it was packed for shipping (maybe a little of both, perhaps) but I would like to thank Burpee for their wonderful service!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from We will see My order contained 19 plants of 4 varieties. The Goji berries looked weak. Thee were more broken pieces of Goji plant than whole goji plants. I planted and will keep my fingers crossed. I will update status in the spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm really loving it! Got mine in spring 2014 and put it in the ground. It hasn't grown super tall in its first year (maybe 30"), but I'm getting lots of little berries. Super neat. Pretty sure I'm going to buy more next spring. One note from my area at least... I often have insect problems with plants, but so far at least, my local bugs seem to have ZERO interest in my goji berry plant. This alone is pretty great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings My Goji Berry arrived looking very pathetic but when planted in a 5 gallon container, it took off. However all the leaves are a light green and I don't believe they are supposed to be this color. Not sure what is going on, any ideas would be appreciated, I do have a couple of flowers that bloomed this morning. Just want to know its healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Goji plant My plant came looking just like "winsorw's" which he seems unsatisfied with. I however am loving my Goji-Berry plant and it is doing fantastic (as you can see in my pictures). I bought it from on March 1 2014 and it is May 22 2014 today. I watered it right away when I received it, then planted it a few hours later. It is planted in Pro-Mix Ultimate Organic Mix soil, with dolomite mixed in along with adding fertilizer. I couldn't ask for the Goji to be doing better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so good looking Goji berry The plant I received was very small and doesn't look healthy, a few small branches are broken due to shipping. It's not worth the price.
