Taos Goji Nursery

 

We sell one and two year goji cultivars. The trees are organically cloned from our hardy and best producing mother plants. The gojis are well suited for this dry, hight altitude climate. In 2007 the U.S. Department of Agriculture presented the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of Selected Foods. This report included 277 food samples of different foods. The studies measured antioxidant capacity and the higher the ORAC rating of a substance, the more free-radicals it can destroy. It has been suggested that humans should consume about 5000 ORAC units a day for maximum benefits. Blackberries have an ORAC score of 2.036, blueberries: 2400, raspberries: 2,400, strawberries: 1,540, cherries: 670 and red grapes: 739. As a comparison, Goji berries have an ORAC score of 25,300!
