Descriptions of plants:

Kiwi - (Actinidia) Kiwi is a deciduous vining plant that can trail up to 30' if not pruned. The fruit occurs on the female but the male can pollinate the female up to a ratio of 6 to 1.  Fuzzy fruit with a green inside is harvested in the fall. Fruit is borne on wood that is year old or older. During the winter, cut out wood that has fruited for 3 years and cut back younger shoots leaving about 3 to 7 buds beyond the previous summer's fruit - kind of similar to the way a cane-type grape is pruned. Does well in zones 4-9, 12-24. (Crop Failure - not available in quarts this year)

Hardy Kiwi - Can take temperatures to -30 F. Deciduous and similar to the regular Kiwi except that the fruit is not fuzzy and is the size of a very large grape. It can be eaten skin and all. Issai is a self fruitful variety that needs no special pollinator. Does well in zones 1-10, 12, 14-24.

 

Goji Berry (Lycium barbarum) is a deciduous bush that grows up to 8' tall in full sun although shade in the late afternoon in hot summer areas is sometimes recommended. Goji should be hardy to -10 F. It is not picky about soil or the pH of the soil. Goji Berry is in the same family as potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant and peppers. Birds may eat the fruit so treat it like you would a blueberry. It is native to the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet and Mongolia although it has been grown in China for thousands of years.

Goji berries contain all the essential amino acids and has one of the highest concentration of protein in a fruit. It is loaded with vitamin C too. It is a nutritional powerhouse  with minerals and is also high in fiber. This fruit is an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and has anti-fungal compounds. The powerful antioxidant properties and polysaccharides help to boost the immune system.

The fruit can be eaten fresh but is most often eaten dried. Please note that there can be adverse interactions if you consume Goji berries while also taking medication for diabetes, or blood pressure, or take the blood thinner warfarin. So be sure to consult your health care provider if that is the case.

Black Beauty Semi-Dwf Mulberry - Large, black fruit with sweet, flavorful flesh that resembles a blackberry but with more flavor. The fruit can stain however. Wear gloves when picking the fruit. Related to the Persian Mulberry but this semi-dwarf variety grows to about 8 -12' but can be trained as a bush under 5'. Deciduous. Heat and drought tolerant but fruits better with regular water. Hardy in Zones 4-24.
