Black chokeberry (aronia) is a small shrub or tree, about 1.5 meters tall, with leaves resembling cherry leaves. The berries are sweet, delicious, slightly acerb or tartish, especially when immature. Chokeberry is often cultivated by amateur gardeners, countrymen, and at specialized farms as a decorative, fruit and medicinal plant. The homeland of the aronia (black chokeberry) is the eastern part of North America. There aronia grows on dry rocky soils and on steep river banks, among dunes and in the woods, as well as in marshes. At the beginning of the 18th century, black chokeberry was brought to Europe, and about a hundred years later it has reached our lands. Until the beginning of the 20th century chokeberry was cultivated only as a decorative plant. Indeed, the white tints of aronia flowers and dense dark green leaves look very fancy. In the autumn, clusters of black shiny fruits are clearly distinguishable at the background of orange-red leaves.
