Aronia Berry

Aronia Berry is a sour berry high in antioxidants, native to the eastern half of the United States. It is vigorous, cold hardy, and grows well in various soil types, including boggy soils that are poorly drained to well-drained sites. Aronia berry grows rapidly into an impressive large shrub with dark green foliage. Its leaves produce spectacular color in the fall, and the plant is highly pest and disease-resistant. Small white blooms in the spring will give way to glossy dark fruit. These berries may be eaten raw but are often used in wine, jam, soft spreads, and other processed foods.
