Its delicious fruit has been a staple in the diets of many Native American tribes, and is often used to make jams, jellies, and syrup. Chokecherries are also high in antioxidant pigment compounds, such as anthocyanins, and have been named the official fruit of the state of North Dakota. Despite the confusion it may cause with Aronia, called chokeberries, Prunus virginiana offers unique health and culinary benefits. So come, try its tasty fruit and get a taste of native North American culture!
