[NAFEX] Anyone growing goji in zone 4?

I've been growing for about 5 years.  Solitary plants do produce fruit but apparently require the help of an insect to pollinate.  I'm growing out some seed to see if another pollinator may help fruit production, as the selection I have only produces limited amounts of fruit.

>From what I've read, they are perfect flowered, so one plant should set fruit.    I just acquired a couple of  them, so I haven't had time to see how they perform.

Lon, Do you happen to know if Goji is dioecious?

(and maybe I’ll finally see fruit off of it).
