THE ARONIA PLANT

Aronia melanocarpa or black chokeberry is a multi-stemmed, deciduous, eastern North American shrub. Each mature plant produces an abundance of white flowers in midspring, but you won’t see fruit until autumn. The berries are so darkly purple that they appear almost black.

What are Aronia Berries?

Aronia berries grow in North America in small bunches, much like blackcurrants, blueberries, and cranberries, but have earned the nicknames “apple berries” and “choke berries” because they look more like the stone fruit inside. There are two forms of chokeberry plants (Aronia melanocarpa); red and blue, though the blue is most common, and has the same blue-black shade of a blackberry. The fruit is about the same size as a blueberry, has the similar sharp taste of blackcurrants, and only contains 13 calories per 28g (fresh).

Traditionally, Native Americans used choke berries as a cold remedy, and likely found them an effective cure due to the berries’ richness in antioxidants. Current studies show that they have wide-spread health benefits.

Pure

Natural Superfood

Aronia berries provide a variety of health benefits thanks to the incredibly high levels of antioxidants found in their plant pigments (anthocyanins) and the micronutrients (polyphenols) they contain. 
Our bodies create free radicals as a natural byproduct of metabolism. A number of factors can cause the number of free radicals in the body to increase, such as stress, alcohol, infection and even radiation. Too many free radicals in the body can lead to what is known as oxidative stress, whereby the free radicals begin to attack or break down healthy cells leading to a greater risk of disease and illness.

Native

North American

Aronia is a native North American plant that is widely grown in Europe for fruit production. Aronia plants can easily be grown in the North American ecosystem in growing zones 3 to 7. Aronia, also called chokeberry, is a decidious, self pollinating, perennial shrub.
Growing Aronia berries in your garden brings many advantages. It is a very decorative and robust plant. Aronia is able to withstand insect infestations and is adapted to the natural ecosystem. Better than non native plants, it can easily handle diseases as well as natural variations in climate. Once planted in your garden, the Aronia plant requires just a little care.
