Aronia (Aronia melanocarpa) seeds in a ripe fruit. 一枚野櫻莓熟果的種子.

Cold hardy flowering shrub with edible berries.  Good for planting as hedge.  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  Late spring with small white flowers in clusters. Flowers attract bees.  Foliage has nice orange red fall color.  Berries are either red or black when the fruit are ripe in fall.  Berries are usually acidic when eating straight so most of time are used for beverage, jam or canned fruit for pie. USDA Zones:3-8. Mature size:3′-6′(H/W). Propagate by seeds or cuttings.

強健耐寒的開花性灌木其果實可食.  適合用做綠籬.  容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處.  春末開白色成簇的小花.  花為頗吸引蜂類的蜜源.  秋末時葉色會由綠轉橘紅明亮的秋色.  果實依品種有的熟果是紅的,有的是黑的. 果實很富營養但生食頗酸澀.  通常製成果汁果醬或醃製後做成甜點則頗為美味. 喜冷不耐熱.  成熟株高/寬幅為3-6呎.  繁殖方式以種子或扦插方式來進行.
