Some autumn olive are much tastier than others. Some are very
tart/astringent and others are sweet. I have 5 named varieties, one unnamed
one  and one that is evergreen. My two favorites are Charles's Gold and the
evergreen one that I have named Florence Strange for the woman who gave it
to me. All but 1 of the named varieties are from Hidden Springs nursery in
Tennessee--but they are phasing them out since they are considered a pest in
that area. Mine, However, have never set one seedling and I have had them
for at least 12-15 years. I live in the dry west in near the coast in
northern California.

If you end up resorting to seeds, there are multiple mature specimens, 
both cultivated and escaped on UNC South Campus (the old Odum Village) 
that bear regularly. I sometimes beat the squirrels to some fruit.
