Dragon Herbs is a specialist in Goji. Ron Teeguarden has been selling Goji berries since 1974. Dragon Herbs has been growing Goji at the base of Heaven Mountain in Central Asia for nearly twenty years, and we grow nearly forty tons of luscious berries every year for sale in the United States and Europe. The Heaven MountainTM Goji Berries are grown on glacial melt and require no further irrigation. The natural structured water is the best possible source of water for the Goji to grow on. The land is perfectly suited to Goji (virgin desert, naturally salty and alkaline).
Heaven Mountain towers above the foothills that are saturated in glacial melt. This is the land where Goji grows.
