Aronia Berry (aronia melanocarpa) is a Zone 2 hardy, disease resistant shrub( 1-2m ) that boasts masses of white flowers in the spring and spectacular red leaves in the fall....making Aronia a perfect candidate for edible landscaping projects. The many clusters of edible black, "cherry-like berries" hang well into the winter providing food for both humans and wildlife. Aronia berries have 58% more antioxidants than blueberries and 90% more than cranberries hence giving it "super fruit" status. The fruit can be eaten fresh but is usually made into jam, juice, wine or tea. Aronia berries are incredibly easy to grow in almost any soil or climate conditions. Order 2 varieties to assure cross pollination and more abundant cropping(more fruit). We sell Viking and Taylor.
