Aronia Berries - Chokeberries: Superfood in a Small Package

Aronia berries (also known as black chokeberries) are small dark fruits that grow on shrubs of the multi-stemmed Rosaceae family, native to North America but now grown in Eastern Europe.

In recent years, they've become popular among health-conscious types as a superfood with a range of positive effects. The name “chokeberries” derives from their powerful mouth-drying effect, which can take you by surprise if you’re not used to it! We source our berries from several locations in the EU to ensure the finest quality year-round.

FAQ

Yes, chokeberries (Aronia berries) can indeed grow in the UK. They are hardy plants that tolerate a variety of climates, making them suitable for cultivation in the UK's temperate climate. However, Plantlife is currently sourcing Chokeberries from Ukraine

Chokeberries are native to North America, specifically the eastern United States and Canada. They are also found in parts of Europe and Asia. These versatile shrubs thrive in damp, acidic soils and can be grown in various regions globally.

Chokeberries can be enjoyed in several ways. You can eat them fresh, but be prepared for their tartness. They are often used in culinary creations like smoothies, jams, muffins, and salads to add a tangy and antioxidant-rich element. Dried chokeberries make for a convenient and nutritious snack.

Chokeberries have a unique taste profile, characterized by a tart and astringent flavor. When eaten raw, they can be quite sour, which is why they are often used in combination with sweeteners in recipes to balance their sharpness. Some describe their taste as similar to cranberries but with a deeper, more complex flavor.

Chokeberries can be incorporated into various cooked dishes. To soften their tartness, you can cook them into sauces, pies, tarts, and desserts. Simmering chokeberries with sugar or honey can help mellow their flavor, resulting in delightful culinary creations that harness their health benefits.
