Anyone eat Russian olive fruit?
I was in the field yesterday and noticed a volunteer Russian olive that was just loaded with fat juicy red berries and ate a few. These were the sweetest Russian olives I've ever tasted. Normally the fruit of a Russian olive is sweet but some what astringent, you know the green persimmon taste. I was wondering if it was the growing conditions or if this one is genetically better.
The only draw back is I'll bet that the Russian olive is one of the worst invasive species ever.
