Well, let's distinguish between the dried berries and the fresh berries.

Dried Berries: 

I have become fond of them.  There is a slight "musty or dusty" characteristic that probably puts off most people.  But they are not bad and are quite good when cooked in ways similar to raisins.  A good addition to baked goods.

Fresh Berries:

They need significant time after they turn red to ripen, sweeten and develop good flavor.  Picked after they turn red, but not before fully ripe, taste sort of like a bland tomato similar to what you find in grocery stores in February.  Not really worth eating them.  Fully ripened (around here about the time of first frosts) they are sweet and better tasting.  Sort of tomato like, but not as strong a flavor.

I could never get enough fruit from my plants to justify the space they took up and dug them out this spring.

   Do Goji berries taste good or are they just valued for their medicinal value?
