Aronia is a fruit species that has been present in our region since the middle of the last century. At the end of the sixties, it was also grown in the vicinity of Aleksandrovac. It is extremely appreciated for its healing effect on the human body, as well as for the content of vitamins C, B2, B9 and E and the mineral potassium, phosphorus and iodine. It affects the human body by improving circulation, improves the work of the thyroid gland, cleanses the blood, helps with atherosclerosis, inflammation of the veins and varicose veins, soothes cramps and stomach pains, as well as inflammatory processes, and improves the work of the liver. It can be used raw or dried. It is mostly used for processing, ie for juice production.
Aronia came to Europe from the eastern parts of North America. The Indians have used chokeberry since time immemorial in various ways.
The spacing of planting chokeberry seedlings is 2.50 x 2.00m in a row.
Our chokeberry seedlings are produced and grown in our nursery. We use the initial material, for the production of chokeberry seedlings from our parent plantations, which were raised from chokeberry seedlings of the certified category. Certified planting material is from leading institutes from the Netherlands, Italy and Germany. The parent plantations are elongated in locations that have spatial isolation, as well as in specially protected areas, the so-called retinas that are protected with anti-insect nets. Thanks to this fact, we produce chokeberry seedlings of the standard category and for seedlings we have all the certificates issued by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management of the Republic of Serbia.
