Pick goji berries in Cyprus!

The goji berry, or wolf berry, is a so-called “super berry” that is incredibly rich in antioxidants and vitamins. In recent years, the berry, which originates in China, has become very popular in many households. You can have it in your muesli, mix it in smoothies or use it to spruce up the summery salads. The berry is both tasty and nutritious.

Goji berries contain 500 times more vitamin C than oranges, three times more iron than spinach, four times more antioxidants than the cherry and 6 times more beta carotene than carrots. The nutritional benefits of goji berries have been confirmed by research and clinical studies. The preferred amount of goji berries is about 15 grams per day. As the popularity of the berry has grown bigger, more products containing goji berries have come on the market, such as juices and powders.

In several places in Cyprus the goji berry grows wild and is just waiting to be picked. The plant is called boxthorne and it can be found along the coast outside of Famagusta, near the Salamis ruins. The berries can be both dried and frozen.
