Boxthorn is a deciduous, fully hardy shrub that bears the typically pale-violet blossoms of Solanaceae. For a long time, it had only been used as a decorative plant and for soil fortification on the central reservations of German motorways until the health-promoting effect and edibility of the berries became known to a broader audience.
The sweet red goji berries of boxthorn are mainly used dried and taste similar to raisins. In China (their original home), they are considered as a nourishing tonic and a mild aphrodisiac. Boxthorn is a medicinal plant of TCM (= Traditional Chinese Medicine). The berries are used for the strengthening of the yin.

In Germany, the goji berry belongs to the so-called 'Superfoods' due to its very high concentration of vital substances. The berries are eaten fresh or dried in cereals, yogurt, or in smoothies.

The root system can be very invasive as soon as the plant has established itself. The strong formation of offshoots can only be hindered with a rhizome barrier. For that reason, boxthorn is also often used for the fortification of slopes.

Main harvest:
Sow outdoors from the middle of May after the last frosts. Beans are often sown in clusters of five to six seeds together in a planting hole, keeping a distance of about 40 cm between clusters. Row spacing approx 100 cm. The beans should not be buried more than 2 cm deep. Seeds of legumes often germinate better if they are pre-soaked in water for a few hours. Runner beans are climbing plants and need a climbing aid or trellis. Suitable rods or cords should be completed and already installed prior to sowing.
Beans are most comfortable at temperatures between 18 and 25 °C. They prefer a sunny, sheltered location and deep humus-rich soil. When the plants have grown about 20 cm high, earthing up is highly recommended.
