I cannot be 100% sure, but would say they are one of hundreds of leaf Galls. These are believed to be caused by insect bites, usually mites, in the early part of the leaf growth phase. They grow on many types of plants. They are all hard ovoid looking nodules in the leaf. I see them every year on my willow, and on various woody plants around the yard. They do not seem to cause any real harm to the plant or tree, and those leaves usually fall off sooner than the others. Some insects and wasps cause them by laying an egg, and the plant encases it in live distorted growth untill it hatches out.

 

I have read that spraying in winter with a dormant spray can reduce or eliminate the formation of the leaf galls, but they are not considered harmful, and just the plants natural way of reacting to the insects. There is some better info here.......

Well I won't be bringing that plant inside any room in the house!

Thanks Skye!

I'm good with it as long as it does not kill my plant. Just got it this year and even if it's a hand full of berries I'd like to be able to start more plants so I can have berries to dehydrate for granola bars oatmeal and the likes. I munched on a few with some blueberries and currents and the combo was good but the goji seemed to enhance the flavor of the other two nicely!

i was gunna say Galls too... but i cant see shit from that horrible picture... lol

Sorry Psy.... you know me and how I love quality focus :P  lol

 

 

They dont really case much damage unless a pest causes it and that pest is in

infestation numbers.

 

Start neem and garlic and cilantro+basil botanical/foliar sprays first thing in the spring.

They will go away 99%, for some reason like 1% of people the sprays supposedly dont

work for... but I think those people are lying lol... because they probably made the sprays

wrong or just never sprayed and say they did... lol 

 

 

everyone ive shared my sprays with, have never had reoccurring issues.
