Aronia, could this be the healthiest fruit in the world? Aronia certainly ranks very highly, being richer in antioxidants than blueberries and goji berries - both of which we regard as 'superfoods'. Aronia is also believed to be able to prevent heart disease.
This native of North America fruit produces white spring flowers followed by lots of little fruits similar to cranberries and, while they are too tart and sharp to eat fresh, aronia berries are perfect for making into a sauce which can be added to summer puddings and cheesecakes, juices and smoothies.
Aronia is a deciduous, multi-stemmed bush which can grow up to 10ft (3m). It is very hardy and does best in moist, fertile soils and will easily tolerate heavy clay. Aronia is best in full sun or partial shade, it puts on a most attractive autumn foliage display of red and crimson and looks especially good in naturalistic or informal settings.
Delivered as potted plants in 2 litre pots.
Last autumn we took the decision to offer all of our potted fruit in 2 litre pots instead of 9cm pots. In many instances, the price remained the same but you get a larger plant that’ll establish sooner and as a consequence, fruit earlier and longer too. The plants are, on average, a year older than 9cm potted varieties and due to the larger pot, the roots have more room to grow and develop which in turn allows them to absorb more nutrition, resulting in stronger and healthier plants.
