AROSO BERRY....mt ash X aronia
We have been researching for less bitter tasting mountain ash(sorbus) berries and this cross which we have called AROSO is a great improvement on the flavour of the usual mountain ash fruit. AROSO is a spectacularly beautiful small tree( 3m) with its fern-like leaves, profuse white flowers and huge clusters of dark-red berries that hang well into winter...... if the birds do not eat them first. These berries have a strong fruity taste that is great for flavouring Vodka, vinegars, sauces, etc. and give them a nice red colour. AROSA is a rare cross between a mountain ash(sorbus) and chokeberry(aronia) and has a flavour that is better than either parent. VERY winter hardy to Zone 3 or maybe colder.
