In a Nutshell:
* The chokeberries ( Aronia ) are two to three species of deciduous shrubs in the family Rosaceae , native to eastern North America . They are most commonly found in wet woods and swamps. Chokeberries are cultivated as ornamental plants and also because they are very high in antioxidant pigment compounds, like anthocyanins.
* The fruits are eaten by birds (birds do not taste astringency and feed on them readily), which then disperse the seeds in their droppings. more...
