Aronia (3 Gallon Container)
"Aronia, the chokeberries, are two to three species of deciduous
shrubs in the family Rosaceae, native to eastern North America. They
are most commonly found in wet woods and swamps.
Chokeberries are cultivated as ornamental plants and also because they
are very high in antioxidant pigment compounds, like anthocyanins. The
name "chokeberry" comes from the astringency of the fruits, which are
inedible when raw. The berries can be used to make wine, jam, syrup,
juice, soft spreads, tea and tinctures. The fruits are eaten by birds,
which then disperse the seeds in their droppings; birds do not taste
astringency and feed on them freely."
