I have two goji berry plants that I planted last year (which were bought as two year old plants) and which grew really well. Both have canes reaching well over ten feet and this year they look set to grow even more. However there is absolutely no sign of any flowers or blossoms which means no fruit. I did a search recently and found numerous forums and videos from amateur and professional growers detailing how there are quite a lot of goji berry plants on the market that just don produce fruit.

Does anyone have any experience growing goji berries? I know its still early days but I'm thinking of pulling them up before they get to big. No point in having them if they dont produce. Any thoughts?

I researched them too and read many places where they said it can take a few years to produce fruit.

Thanks for the info guys, although Greengage there is'nt really that much in these forums about goji berries. I was hoping if there is anyone out there who has been growing gojis for enough years to have some sort of experience with them. I was told by the company that I bought them from that they should bear fruit this year which I'm pretty certain wont happen.

Heres a video from a professional grower discussing the topic,
