Wolfberries, medicine for thousands of years to many cultures. Here at Mesa Verde National Park, they are found as well. Common to Far View Sites they are now in flower, and stand 3′ tall as woody shrubs. When the fruit blooms, it will be orange/red and can be eaten fresh or dried and eaten like raisins, or put into teas, used in cooking, and they treat many things including, because they are the color red, blood. Liver and Kidneys benefit from Goji berries, otherwise known as wolfberry and Lycium spp.
