1 gallon pots - 2 year old
Blueberry-sized black fruits produced by Aronia melanocarpa have the highest known levels of antioxidants (anthocya- nins and flavonoids) of any temperate fruit, five times higher than cranberry and blueberry. Aronia has been widely grown in eastern Europe and Russia where the fruits are processed and used in beverages, wine, jelly, and baked goods. (Sugar content is 10%-20%, with high acidity - perfect for blended wines of low acidity fruits like apple or plum).
Grows to 8 ft, in sun or part shade, highly drought resistant, and most commonly desired as a "landscape" plant... quickly becoming known as a food (juice) plant.
