Nature’s healer and protector, the aroniaberry was highly valued and utilized by Native Americans, who considered the berry to be an essential part of their daily health needs. A hearty plant, aroniaberry (chokeberry) bushes once thrived throughout much of North America. They disappeared, only to resurface and grow in popularity throughout Eastern Europe in the 1800s. Today, we are seeing a resurgence of the growth of aroniaberries in North America, as this tiny but powerful berry takes center stage among the superfruits. The aroniaberry is making its way into the diets of those who seek alternative health choices and fresh foods that contain multiple benefits for overall wellness.
