Amber Autumnberry

Amber Autumnberry, or Amber Autumn Olive – sibling to its red variant – is a sweet-tart refreshing little fruit that is very easy to pick if the fruit is within reach on the tree. It grows in bunches. Apt description of it at the Walden Effect:

“Autumn Olive fruits are both tart and sweet (comparable to a Winesap apple), with a very unique flavor that reminds me of the sweet, ornamental crabapples we used to scavenge on our walks home from the library as a kid.  Autumn Olive berries do have seeds, but the seeds are about the consistency of a cashew, so it’s easy to just chomp the whole thing up.”
