Chokeberries are the small fruits produced by the Aronia melanocarpa shrub. When consumed raw, the berries are extremely tart, thus lending to its chokeberry nickname. The Aronia melanocarpa shrub produces small chokeberries that are encased in a skin that is dark purple to black in hue. These astringent, flavorful, polyphenol-rich berries are commonly used in jams, syrups, wines, juices, tisanes, flavorings and other culinary applications.
