Aronia is a frost-resistant, up to 2 m high fruit shrub from North America, which was already appreciated by the Indians as a remedy and as fortifying supplies for the winter. Around 1900, Aronia was introduced to Russia and grown there on a large scale by an orchard pioneer. And indeed, this berry dwarfs all Asian and tropical fruits. The antioxidant properties of plant compounds, for example, are almost twice as high as those of the superfruit goji berry. In addition to juice, the aronia berry can be used very versatile. Of course, it can also be eaten raw and dried. Jam, tea, fruit juice, and natural cosmetics are just a few other uses.
