Also commonly referred to as chokeberry, Aronia (Aronia melanocarpa) hails from the Rosaceae family of plants, a family that includes many important edible and ornamental crops such as apples, plums, roses, and almonds. Resistant to drought, insects, and disease, aronia is a hearty plant with cold tolerance of -40° F, or zone 3. The deciduous shrubs produce dark purple, nearly black berries as a result of their high anthocyanin content – a factor which also contributes to the extraordinarily high antioxidant content in aronia berries.
