About Yellow Autumnberry/Yellow Autumn Olive
Yellow Autumnberry/Yellow Autumn Olive plants bear abundant crops of large, yellow berries. Sweet and flavorful, the fruit ripens in mid to late September. An attractive medium to large shrub, it also features abundant fragrant flowers and attractive, dark green foliage. Autumnberries are revered as a powerful medicine in Asia. Native to the mountains of Eastern Asia, the autumnberry has been cultivated for its positive characteristics, and is still utilized in the diets of Koreans, Chinese, and Japanese in tea, wine, jam, and traditional medicine. Also known as Autumn Olive because of its close relationship to the Russian-olive (Elaeagnus angustifolia), which is named for its fruit’s appearance (the fruit resembles an olive).
