Superfruit: Aronia x prunifolia ‘Viking’ (syn. Black Chokeberry)
Three times the level of antioxidants found in blueberries and high in vitamin C, this is said to be the healthiest fruit in the world
The berries are too sharp to be eaten raw but are ideal for sauces in summer puddings or blended into juices and smoothies.
The plants are very hardy, easy to grow and will do best in moist, fertile soils in sun or part shade.
Season: late August – September.
