There is a wonderful little red berry that grows all over the world and people are called differently in different places. Many English-speaking people call Wolfberry, and today more English speakers call Goji Berry. But that's really the same.
As we all know, Science has two Latin names for each botanical organization, one genus and one species. Two plants that are still a bit different from each other have different species names. Thus, if two plants have the same genus and species names, then the same plant. People can name them different names, but that does not change the fact that they are really the same thing. The Goji berry / Wolfberry plant, whose genus is Lycium, is two closely related species. One species is known as Barbarum, the other is Chinensis. Both races grow in many places in many places. As people in different countries speak different languages, it is not surprising that Chinese and Tibetan people do not name these worms as wolves. There are many dialects in China. The plant is often called gǒuqǐ, and the berries are gǒuqǐzi (zi means "berry"). "Goji" is the simplified pronunciation of gǒuqǐ.
Similar words are also found in other languages. For example, in Korea, berries are called gugi, and they are known as gao gè in Thailand. Many of the Tibetan names are called berries, including qouki, qou ki ji, quak qou, kew ji and kew. In Japan, the plant is called a flower, and fruit is known as kuko or kuko kajitsu.
In 1973, the word "Goji" was initially used in English. There is a word for berry that was similar to these Asian words. Since then, the word "Goji" has been used by many marketers, as berries have appeared in more and more natural food stores in the US. The new word "Goji" is now widespread.
Not really It is clear from the origin of the word "wolfberry". One of the theories is that it originated from the place called "Lycia", the ancient name of Anatolia in Turkey and Lycia Lycium Barbarum. "Barbarum" means that wolfberry was originally from other countries, such as China. But that does not explain why the word "wolf" is in it. Thus, another possibility is that Lycium Barbarum comes from Greek "Lycos" or Wolf. The wolves do not eat berries and other fruits to get their fibers in their diet. They also consume tomatoes, whose Latin name is "Wolf Peach" (Solanum lycopersicum.) The "lycos" or the wolf is in Latin.
The genus Solanum is another species, lycocarpum, which turns to Wolf Apple. This medium-sized yellow paradise is not familiar to many people because it grows in South America. South American wolves eat them! It's not the same plant as the tomato that we're used to in North America. What's the point? I'm going …
Goji berries and Wolfberries are in the Nightshade family (Solanaceae) and so are tomatoes! Night ovens are an important food and spice source. Nightly vagina species include potatoes, aubergines, tomatoes, peppers, chili peppers (capsicum), deadly nightdream (belladonna), datura (jimson weed), tobacco, mandragora, wolfberry and many more other. An important food family is used for herbal remedies for natural peoples around the world. Some have psychoactive properties. Goji berries are legendary as a herb and have been used in many countries for centuries.
Goji berries and wolves have many other names such as boxthorn, Duke of Prince Argyll, Matrimony Vine, Bocksdorn, Cambronera, Chinese Wolfberry and Red Medlar. The point is that Lycium Barbarum and Lycium Chinensis are two completely different species, two completely different plants. Many people advertise different names. They claim, for example, that Tibetan Lycium Eleagnus Barbarum is the REAL Himalaya Gogi berry, although it does not actually exist as a species.
There is no doubt that these two species have different therapeutic and nutritional properties, WHERE being different species. In fact, not only the different species are different, but it is also true that each variant of each species is chemically and hence somewhat nutritional.
Some mountainous areas in Tibet and North China There is the commonly known name "Goji Belt", a fertile elevation region where Goji plants are grown and grown wild. The "best quality" Goji berries are produced in the best place and in the climates, which turns out to be the Goji Belt. This is because the purity of water and the digging of high mountains is rich in soil.
The political dispute between Tibet and China is well known. There is also a Tibetan / Chinese political strife about what determines the goji berry. From a Western perspective, this is simply confusing.
In addition, the name Tibet carries an unmistakable mystic. This is why Western marketers can easily take advantage of it and claim that the superiority of TIBETAN Goji berries is above all. But, as we have seen, there is no "Tibetan" goji berry from a scientific point of view.
Tibet, a country that is more vertical than horizontal, mostly dry, infertile and dry, The highest mountains in the world are not famous for farming. Neighboring with China. Political borders really do not count as land or Goji plants; Soil and climate are important factors in Chinese wolves and goji berries
The highest quality berries are the highest glyconutriens and are grown in Ningxia and Xinjiang provinces in China, directly in the Goji Belt. These areas contain an exceptional growing season, unusually alkaline soil, a sufficient amount of rainfall and extreme temperature fluctuations between 102 and 16 degrees.
The Goji Belt produces four types of Goji berries: Super, King, Special and Class A. The biggest berries are "super", the second is the "king" and so on. There may be marketers who announce the best berries but still the same berries, the Lycium Barbarum. They are, unless Lycium Chinensis is of course.
Wolfberries, Gojis, are wonderful. Politicians and marketers can easily confuse and smoke smoke around goji berries or goji juice. However, nothing central is the fact that this unique little berry is the world's largest nutritional plant!
