Edible berry contains possible cancer-fighting agents. Elaeagnus umbellata, or the Autumn Olive, has been found to contain eighteen times the amount of lycopene that is found in tomatoes.

I searched briefly and found the plant for sale at WildlifeGroup.com

It is hardy from Zone 4 to Zone 8. Zone map.

Yeah, no more replying to my own post now.

Anyone got a working link to this?

Well, shit. Sorry about that.

here...

and since I'm incompetent, let's link it twice...

I think the problem with the original link is that I went there from some random redirect thing and so the url was probably randomly generated and when I clicked the link to check it before posting, it probably worked from the cache or some cookie or something and not directly. Hell if I know. Sorry.
