Aronia Berry Plants

Also called black chokeberries

The aronia berry plant (Aronia melanocarpa) is native to eastern North America, even though Europe also has a successfully naturalized species of the plant. Creamy white ornate flowers decorate the aronia berry bush in spring, followed by ink-black berries in the fall. Fall foliage is known to change from smooth green to a vibrant-red color, making the aronia berry bush a seasonal beauty. Plants tend to be cold hardy and resist pests and disease, making them easy-care additions to the backyard garden once established. Aronia berries are a rich source of antioxidants and vitamin C. They can be eaten fresh when ripe, where the flavor is sweet, although the astringent pucker explains the origin of the colloquial name, chokeberry. The fruit is more commonly used in juices, wines, and jellies.

Not to be confused with “chokecherries”, which is a different plant.

To ensure your growing success and satisfaction, there are a few things to consider when you buy an aronia berry plant.

Zone Compatibility

Your climate plays an important role in whether an aronia berry plant will produce fruit or even survive. Before ordering a plant, make sure its recommended hardiness zone range includes your area.

Proper Pollination

Even though our aronia berry plants are self-pollinating, we still recommend planting another variety in your yard for optimum fruit production.
