Facts About Aronia Berries

The aronia berry, also called choke berry, is considered to be the highest antioxidant berry of all the fruits. Aronia is the name that Native Americans use to refer to the berries since they are dark; hence its nickname, the black chokeberry. In Poland and Russia, the aronia berry juice is a very popular drink that they use to help with their heart conditions. Studies have concluded that the aronia berries help with diabetes, urinary tract infections, cancer, the flu and cardio vascular ailments.

The aronia berry has been proven to improve blood circulation, strengthen the blood vessels, and suppress viruses. The berry also acts as an antioxidant, anti inflammatory and anti carcinogenic in the human body. It prevents cancer and cardio vascular ailments from forming. It is bitter/tart in taste, similar to that of a blueberry. It is a deep purple in color. If the taste of the aronia berry is not to your liking, it can be sweetened. It is proven to work better with no sugar added, however. The berry juice can be consumed as a mixture with tonic water or sparkling water.

The berry plant is usually adapted in the moist swamp areas. They are grown or planted in just about every national region. They can be grown with little care and effort. Naturally, these berries can be found growing under trees. If you are planning to grow this shrub, plant them where the climate suits them.

Al,

We do not sell Aronia Berry Juice or whole berries. We are solely an informational site about fruit. Where are you located? Perhaps we can refer you to someone in your area?

Thanks,
Jenny

Bonnie, I do not know a direct supplier, but I asked an aronia berry grower and they said, “There are many sources where they can buy the Autumn Magic variety listed on the web.” Please share what you find! Thanks, Jenny

Hi Elizabeth – I’d love to see some photos of your aronia berry trees/bushes. If you want – I’d be happy to feature them in a blog post and maybe include a little write up about what you’ve experienced- so a guest post, if you will.
