How our goji berries are processed
Each tree can produce around 1kg of berries, which are harvested between June and November of each year. As the ripe berries are fragile and easily damaged they must be carefully picked by hand, avoiding the sharp thorns of the goji tree. Legend holds that if touched when unripe, the goji berry will oxidise and turn black, and the traditional hand picking method is still favoured over mechanical harvesting today.
A single berry picker will collect on average 30kg of fresh goji berries in a day. The harvested berries are carefully cleaned and then laid out to dry under the sun. Once fully dry the goji berries resemble small red raisins, and can be safely stored without the need for preservatives for over a year, retaining their characteristic colour, taste and array of nutrients.
Our goji berries are grown on a plantation on the banks of the Yellow River in China, where the rich soil provides all of the water and nutrients needed by the growing goji trees. Around 3000 trees are planted per hectare, and the evergreen shrubs are encouraged to grow lengthways (similarly to a vine) and stand around 1 metre high, which makes it easier to harvest the ripe berries.
