Arboretum Talk: Native Chokeberry Research

Description:
The University of Maryland Extension is studying an alternative crop for organic fruit production: the Black Chokeberry or Aronia. Dr. Andrew Ristvey's talk highlights this eastern U.S native with a long history of fruit production in Eastern Europe. Aronia fruit, blueberry sized and occurring in clusters of 10-20, is easy to harvest, and each plant can yield over 15 lbs. of fruit. In the current quest to identify fruits and vegetables containing high concentrations of flavonoids, considered potent antioxidants, recent studies have revealed great potential in Aronia. See the website extension.umd.edu/agriculture/aronia/index.cfm for further information. {Will appear in FYI on Oct 18, 2011
