Freshly Picked Goji Berry, Ready to Dry

After picking, Goji berries are weighed, and then laid out on drying racks, or just on concrete. In the Ningxia Region, there are approximately 10,000 hectares of Goji berries under cultivation at present. For purposes of comparison, a hectare is 10,000 square meters, equivalent to 2.41 acres. So there are over 24,000 acres of Goji under cultivation in Ningxia. That is a lot of Goji berry.
