Aronia prunifolia is a small, upright, horizontal branched shrub that receives great interest during the months of Autumn due to its magnificent fiery red and orange autumn colour and the hundreds of purple-black berries that are produced. When the pine-scented blackcurrants become ripe enough, they can be made into an excellent jam or can be used to make tasty muffins. The fruits are high in antioxidants. Self-fertile and tolerates a range of soil. The Purple Chokeberry branches out freely and is suitable to be grown in a pot on the patio.
The intended main use of this plant is to grow food for human consumption. We always recommend further research to learn the different ways in which the food source can be prepared and consumed.
