Wolfberry leaves are thin, smooth and dark green with a grassy fragrance. They have a slightly bitter, spinach-like taste with notes of watercress and mint.
Wolfberry leaves contain vitamins A, B, C, and E, protein, beta-carotene, calcium, and flavonoids that have antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.
Wolfberry leaves are recommended to be cooked and are best suited for recipes such as steaming, sautéing, and boiling. They may be used as a substitute for spinach in many recipes.
