Operation Berry Picker

The Florida Native Plant Society knows that the saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) has more purposes than just a landscape plant. Modern science has shown saw palmetto berries to be a treatment for prostate cancer and as a dietary supplement. Finding enough saw palmettos to satisfy the pharmaceutical world is now an issue. Check out Operation Berry Picker and you may realize a need to keep a watchful eye on the saw palmettos in your yard.
