Lycium or goji

Marketed as goji berry, lycium is gaining a reputation as an exotic health food or ‘superfruit’. It is actually a naturalised hedgerow plant in southern Britain, known as the Duke of Argyll’s tea plant, Chinese wolfberry, box thorn or matrimony vine.

The berries make a rejuvenating tonic with a wide range of claimed benefits including improving eyesight and helping reduce the side effects of chemotherapy in cancer patients.
