Chokeberry 'Viking' Bush - Aronia prunifolia - 3L Pot

The 'Viking' chokeberry is a tart, rich berry, which is best used in pies and crumbles when sweetened. Like a blackberry, most people find the chokeberry too sour to eat straight from the bush, but it certainly is possible, and some people will prefer them that way. As a superfood, this is now a popular addition to health juices and other health snacks. The fruit can be used in jams, jellies, wines, syrups and tea, so it is a very versatile fruit indeed!

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.
