Growing Aronia Berry Bushes
Whether you grow aronia berry (Aronia melanocarpa, Photinia melanocarpa) for three seasons of ornamental interest, nutritious, bird-enticing berries or both, you’re in for a real treat. They're grower-friendly plants with only one major drawback -- unripe fruit so persimmon-bitter it’s earned them the nickname of chokeberries. To eliminate that shortcoming, just wait for the fruit to ripen to the sweetness of table grapes! Learn how to grow aronia berry bushes here.
