A Quick Overview Of Goji
How to pronounce Goji
I have given the correct English pronunciation for Goji. Goji berries are native to Asia and some parts of Eastern Europe and the name 'Goji' is an English approximation of the Chinese pronunciation. Chinese has a number of dialects and pronunciations, and is not my field, so I'm going to avoid giving anything other than the English pronunciation. I have added in the pronunciation of the scientific names of the berries with the proviso that academics can differ on this, and tend to prefer 'their' pronunciation regardless that others may differ violently in their idea of what is 'correct'.
What are Goji Berries?
Goji Berries are known as Wolfberries in Europe, at least in the non-healthfood sense. These berries are billed as a Tibetan and or Chinese superfruit and are sold as supplements with health benefits. There are two species, namely Lycium Barbarum and Lycium Chinense, and they belong to the same family as tomatoes and aubergines which is called Solanaceae.
