Chinese Wolfberry/枸纪子/구기자
There are a few Chinese Wolfberry trees near the weekend farm.
Lycium chinense is one of two species of boxthorn in the family Solanaceae from which the goji berry or wolfberry is harvested. It is also known as Chinese boxthorn, Chinese matrimony-vine, Chinese teaplant, Chinese wolfberry, wolfberry, and Chinese desert-thorn.
The plant is used in traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of nightsweats, pneumonia, cough, hematemesis, inflammation, and diabetes mellitus.
枸杞(學名:Lycium chinense;「枸檵(拼音:gǒujì,英文:goji)」,現常稱「枸杞(拼音:gǒu qǐ)」)是茄科枸杞屬的一種,果實稱枸杞子,嫩葉稱枸杞頭. 果實曬乾之後,其中藥名為地骨子,又稱作甘杞、杞子、枸忌、苦杞、血杞、天精子。葉子稱為枸杞葉。根皮乾燥之後,其中藥名為地骨皮,又稱作杞根、地節、紅月附根、狗奶子棍。
