The black chokeberry, also known as chokecherry (Aronia melanocarpa), is a member of the family Rosaceae. It is a native North American plant introduced into Europe in the late eighteenth century. It produces clusters of small stone berries that, particularly in Poland, have been used to make jams, jellies, juices, and wines. Chokeberry juice is very astringent and has been used to improve the taste of apple products. Its astringency is not unlike that of cranberries, and it may find a place as an adjunct for flavoring products that now use cranberries. Chokeberries have also been suggested as a source of anthocyanin pigments for applications as natural colorants (6). Chokeberries are a very minor crop in the United States.
