Aronia Berries (Aronia melanocarpa) Native to North America, the Aronia berry (Aronia melanocarpa) is a tough, disease resistant shrub that boasts masses of white flowers in the spring, spectacular red leaves in the fall and bunches of small black berries that hang well into the winter. The berries are packed with antioxidants making it one of the best ‘super fruits’ with 58% more antioxidant content than blueberries and 90% more than cranberries. The fruit can be used to make jam, juice, wine and tea Aronia berries are incredibly easy to grow in almost any condition. If you’re looking for a crop to grow commercially, this one warrants a second look. In fact, it gets our vote as ‘most likely to succeed’. Do a bit of research and you will notice how demand is building up from ingredient companies for use in power bars and other healthy snack foods. Bareroot unless otherwise stated
