Aronia 'Viking'

$14.99 Regular price $22.99

Viking is a popular commercial variety in Europe, producing over 5 tons of berries per acre.

Aronia is native to northern regions of the world, including Canada. A much-touted “superfruit,” the dark, near-black colour of its tart berries hints at its powerful antioxidant properties. Aronia berries can be eaten fresh but they shine in preserves like jams and jellies. Their flavour also lends itself to delicious wine and tea.

Aronia is a year-round winner with delicate white flowers in spring, deep purple berries in summer and fall, and green foliage that turns to a bright red through the late fall and winter.
