Fruit:I form small, round aronia berries during the summer, which are at first reddish and then bluish-black. They are approximately 6-12 mm in size and weigh 1-1.5 g when they are harvested.
Favorite location:I love the sun, but I also grow well in partial shade.

Special characteristics:I am easy to care for and resistant to insects and parasites. Furthermore, I grow well on my own, but enjoy company, too. But most importantly: I’m winter-hardy, and temperatures as low as -35°C don’t faze me!
