Description

Aronia is only recently being discovered in the US, long having been popular in eastern Europe for its highly nutritious berries. We plant it everywhere on our farm, using the fruit in both fresh and hard ciders, as a frozen treat, and other culinary dishes. It is a much more attractive plant than elderberry with similar health qualities. Fall color of the foliage is exquisite. Cold hardy into zone 3. Very productive. Fruit is jet black when ripe, turning ciders purple. Some reports of self pollenizing, but you will get better crops if you plant at least two. We plant a lot as hedgerows.

Available Services:

Tree Pruning
Proper pruning ensures a healthier tree, improves fruit size and increases fruit yield. Fruit trees should be pruned during winter dormancy. We’ll prune individual trees or an entire orchard.

Planting
We offer services for those who would like assistance in planting and/or maintaining trees and help with everything from staking trees to trellising grapes and berries. We will show you the proper procedures for caring for your home orchard or do the maintenance for you.

Custom Grafting
In addition to grafting the fruit trees we sell, we also offer custom grafting services. We can graft a hard to find cultivar, a reproduction from your own tree, or we can graft onto an existing tree on your property. New trees can be sent right away or grown a year here.

Consulting
We do site visits, help with soil and other tests, and planning. Included are written plans for the implementation and day to day operations of your future of existing plantings. Fees vary according to the extent of the operation. Contact us for further info.
