GOJI BERRY (Lycium barbarum) Native to the Himalayan Mountains, Goji berries are known world-wide for being one of the most nutritionally dense foods. These red berries are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, 18 amino acids and antioxidants. While easy to grow, they do need a high pH soil (6.8-8) and not a lot of nitrogen. Eat fresh or dehydrate them. Ripen in mid summer until frost. Zones 6-9. $15.99 1 gal (1 ft).

SHERBET BERRY (Grewia asiatica) Native to Southern Asia from Pakistan to Cambodia where it is known as Phalsa or Falsa. Sherbet Berry has a 1/2 to 5/8 inch round fruits that are purple to black when ripe. Fruit ripens over an extended time. Pleasantly sweet/sour with a grape sherbet-like flavor. It makes an excellent thirst quenching juice that has a cooling effect. Itís also very nutritious with lots of Vitamin C, Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium, fiber and loaded with antioxidants. Easy to grow, will tolerate light frosts and is drought tolerant. Good container plant for northern areas. Grows to 6-15 foot. Zones 9-11. $29.99 3 gal (3-4 ft).

Japanese Raisin Tree fruit JAPANESE RAISIN TREE- REALLY rare and hard to find! (Hovenia dulcis) This lovely deciduous shade tree is cultivated in Japan for its fruit. Actually you eat the swollen stalks that the fruit grows on. In June the tree is covered with masses of 2-3 inch fragrant, creamy-white flowers growing in clusters. Bees, butterflies and birds love them. In September, when the thickened stalks fall to the ground, they are ripe and will have a sweet, pear-like flavor. Each stalk is small, but the tree produces bountifully. The tree grows in all but constantly or mostly wet sites and likes a fertile, sandy loam in part to full sun. Mature height is 25-30 feet by 20-25 feet wide. Self fertile. Zones 5-10. $39.99 3 gal (4-5ft).

Just Fruits Goumi JUST FRUITS GOUMI (Eleagnus multiflora) This fast-growing shrub has many excellent qualities aside from its small red fruit called goumi berries. Light, lilac-scented flowers appear in April or May, developing into small fruit that can be eaten raw or cooked. The fruit is astringent until ripe, but can be made into pies and jams if picked a little early. Goumi berries are a rich source of vitamins A, C and E and are under investigation as anti-cancer agents. The deciduous bush can grow in almost any well-drained soil (including by the seaside) and tolerates drought and pollution. Fixes nitrogen and can increase fruit yields when interplanted in your orchard. This goumi will grow to 10 feet in height but can be trimmed shorter for hedges. Self fertile. Zones 7-9. $32.99 3 gal (2ft).

SWEET SCARLET™ GOUMI (Eleagnus multiflora) Wouldn't you love to have a smallish (4-6ft.) shrub that is self-fertile and produces fragrant creamy white flowers in May followed by tasty (and nutritious) little red berries the size of small pie cherries? Goumi fruit is delicious fresh, dried, or in a pie or jam. Scarlet Sweet is a Ukrainian variety. This easy little shrub adapts well to any well-drained site in at least a half-day of sun, and it's not bothered by pests or diseases. In addition, it's actually a nitrogen-fixing plant, meaning it requires little fertilizer and makes a beneficial companion to other nearby fruiting plants. Bees love the flowers too! Goumi is also highly valued as a medicinal plant for many purposes. Begins bearing young, at 2-3 years. Zones 4-7. $32.99 3 gal. (1-2ft).

RED GEM™ GOUMI (Eleagnus multiflora) Red Gem is also from the Ukraine and like the Sweet Scarlet™ is a sweet, larger goumi. Begins bearing young, at 2-3 years. Zones 4-7. $32.99 3 gal. (1-2 ft).

GINKGO BILOBA This ancient tree is extinct in the wild and has been propagated in China for at least a thousand years. A fabulous landscaping tree with superb golden fall color is also a wonderful addition to a nut orchard. The nuts are sweet and crunchy and the leaves contain compounds reputed to improve memory function. This year we've been able to grow three types of ginkos: an elegant male, a female with superior nuts and unsexed seedlings. Any would make a beautiful shade tree for your yard, pick the varieties that will best suit your landscape. Give your ginkos plenty of room. Adult tree size is approximately 40 feet by 30 feet for all varieties.

  • EASTERN STAR FEMALE: A grafted variety that has superior quality nuts. Nuts ripen in October and yield is 30 plus pounds per tree. Because the trees are grafted, nut production starts just 4-5 years after planting. Requires a male pollinator. Zones 5-9. $45.99 3 gal (3-4ft).

  • SEEDLING: Seedling ginkos can't be sexed until they flower, so be patient. In the mean time, enjoy the shade and the fabulous fall color. And remember, not everyone gets to sit under the same kind of trees that the dinosaurs used!! Requires a pollinator. Zones 5-9. $32.99 3 gal (3-4ft).
