Factsheet F36: Aronia – the chokeberries


The name chokeberry does not exactly inspire confidence, but the chokeberries are fine cooked fruits very popular in Russia and Eastern Europe. In fact the name in Eastern Europe, where they are grown commercially, is ‘Service Tree’ and the Aronias are closely related to the mountain ash, Sorbus aucuparia. They are in fact native to Eastern North America, where their uses are rather less well known.
