About Red Aronia
Red Aronia, commonly known as Red Chokeberry, earned its name from the bitter flavor they have before they are ripe. However, like a persimmon, the aronia berry will sweeten up after a freeze. Unfortunately, this poor maligned berry was headed into ornamental obscurity, until, that is, science discovered their nutritional value. High in vitamin C and antioxidants, it is being lauded as the healthiest fruit in the world. This new “superfood” was re-branded as Aronia (its scientific name), and it is now a common addition to juices and other health snacks. It can also be made into syrups, jams, and jellies. In the Food Forest, it will attract beneficial insects, withstand periods of drought, be used as an edible hedge/shelterbelt/windbreak, and look beautiful while it does it.
