How many years does it take Lycium chinense to grow fruit, when grown from seed? Lycium chinense is one of the species of Goji Berries.
I live in southwestern Idaho (the hardiness zone ranges between about 4a and 6b, depending on the year, but usually -10 to -15° F. is the coldest it gets). It gets very hot (the hottest it's gotten has been about 116° F., but usually between about 100–110° F. is the yearly high), dry and semi-arid in the summer, and is often wet in the spring/winter and late fall. Our soil is clay-loam.
Note that the link refers to it as Lycium chinensis, but I've verified that this is indeed Lycium chinense. The Goji plants there are Lycium barbarum, though. Goji are in the Solanaceae family (along with peppers and tomatoes), but they're perennial shrubs.
