A Better Wolfberry

Last year we were harvesting worlfberries (a cousin of the goji berry) along the Rio Grande. This year I convinced Wendy to plant some wolfberry seeds in a pot we water regularly. The difference between the wild wolfberries and the regularly watered ones is significant. This photo shows our irrigated fruit which is about 4x the size and many times sweeter than the wild ones. They actually taste good :).

Wolfberries... don't they have a slight bit of atropine in them? That would make me a bit nervous about them, I think.

But it's good to hear that a wild plant has managed to agree to be present in your garden.
