NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON

Aronia Berry
Aldara Hazelnut

Aronia Berry is native to Eastern Canada and the Eastern United States. This branching shrub forms well rooted clumps that can spread. Flowers are usually white (or pink) and they produce black fruit that some people find too astringent, hence they are also known as Black Chokeberry. People who like the taste and not the astringent tannins often blend the berries or juice in with other things.

Some find that Aronia is an attractive ornamental plant for the garden. These shrubs grow well under other trees and their fall color is a vibrant red. It is common to see it used as a hedge.

The berries have their own unique flavour. The polyphenols and anthocyanins are touted as healthy antioxidants and lots of research seems to be underway on the health benefits of this fruit.

We do not grow Aronia Berry every year.

Aldara Hazelnut is a northern hybrid selection noted for its superior nut quality, disease resistance, and cold hardiness.

It is great for attracting wildlife with the added bonus of edible nuts that can be eaten fresh or used in baking. Pair with another Aldara or Andrew Hazelnut for cross pollination to occur.

Aldara and Andrew Hazelnut are currently the hardiest and most reliable nut varieties available for the Canadian prairies.

Note: You want more than one hazelnut to improve yields.
