Delicious Sour Berries Filled With Health Benefits

The Viking Aronia Berry, also known as Chokeberry, is a unique, tart berry with black glossy skin that’s famous for its flavor-packed punch when used in recipes for muffins, jams, wines, desserts and more.

They have a distinct flavor that will make you pucker with nodes of sweeter berries like blueberries and cranberries when eaten fresh. Their sour taste is perfect for combining with sweeter foods, like ice cream and cakes, because they give recipes the mouthwatering zing that they’ve been missing.

A Fun Snack that tastes like sour candy, but is 100% healthy. Add a handful to salads or oatmeal and give your immune system a boost.  These berries are filled with vitamins and minerals.

They are a great source of vitamin C, E, and A, and also have high levels of potassium, iron, and manganese. The antioxidants in Viking Aronia Berries help to protect the eyes and skin, and the fiber content promotes colon health.

These are tough shrubs that don't require a lot of attention. With a high level of pest and disease resistance, nothing stops these robust shrubs from pumping out tons of berries. 

Grow your own at home for an endless supply of delicious berries as well as compact ornate shrubs. Every spring large clusters of white flowers emerge all over Chokeberry shrubs to fill the landscape with stunning color. 

In the fall, its lush green foliage turns shades of orange with a purple tinge, and the ripening berries pop against the bright fall hues for a striking display of autumn colors.

With these shrubs, you’ll have the most stunning landscape in the neighborhood, as well as the best tasting homemade preserves and desserts.

Limited supply.  Be sure to order yours before we run out! 

Viking Aronia Berry Pollination

Viking Aronia Berry are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Viking Aronia Berry will drastically increase the size of your crop.

The perfect bush for new gardeners
I just started to get into gardening, so I'm a total noob at this. I got this in about 3 weeks ago, it sat in the in pot that it came one for almost 2 weeks before I got around to planting it. I give it a moderate amount of water each morning and have even skipped a few waterings. I have even dug it up and moved it about 3 times and despite this it still looks great.

choke berries
I grew up making jams and jellies with choke berries. I already know they are fantastic. VERY tart and sweet at the same time, makes breakfast with flap Jacks or toast a WOW factor.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Viking Aronia Berry

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Viking Aronia Berry .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Viking Aronia Berry gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Viking Aronia Berry again after the transplant is complete.
