Lycopene now available on your nearest Autumn-olive shrub

Are you aware of the health benefits of lycopene?  Read more here.

Tomatoes are a typical source.  Read about another source of lycopene.  FYI – It commonly grows throughout our area.  Check out my wildflower field guides (look in the table of contents of each) to see if Autumn-olive is growing at a local nature preserve, park or trail near you.  If the property is privately owned, please be sure to obtain permission before picking any fruit.

Happy trails!
