The University of Nebraska Extension was a co-sponsor of the Aronia
(chokeberry) presentation I mentioned previously, which was done by Dr.
Everhart last fall. They have terrific handouts/information regarding
Aronia (chokeberry). If you haven't tried, maybe the Univ of Ne's
Backyard Farmer site might have info on Aronia. (And for everybody
else, the Univ of Nebraska produces a program called Backyard Farmer
which is a tremendous resource. They say it's the oldest continuous
show on TV. Google Backyard Farmer for links.) I think you can access
Dr Everhart by going through the Iowa State University Extension site.
I hesitate to put his email up here without his OK. He is very
knowledgeable regarding Aronia husbandry. Breeding/site
selection/habits/propagation/commercial uses, etc. He's encouraging
Aronia cultivation as a commercial crop in SW Iowa - where the climate
is anything but soggy, and often is very harsh temp and wind wise.
Hope it helps. We're trying some this spring here at Oak Dale Farm.
