The family also includes the potato, tomato, eggplant, belladonna, chili pepper, and tobacco. The two species are native to Asia.

Goji or Lycium is a major Chinese tonic herb, first mentioned in the Divine Husbandman’s Classic (Shen’nong Bencaojing), written in the 1st century AD.

Today both the berries and the root have a wide range of medicinal uses. The powder is used in drink and beverage and other food.
