Forgot to mention that USDA is studying the fruits of autumn olive and gumi and found them loaded with antioxidants.  Ten or more times as much lycopene as tomatoes.  Seems that berries in general carry a huge load of antioxidants  as well as other nutrients.  Much more concentrated than in the larger fruits.  Even beat out broccoli!!    Hector   zone 6
