I have two Aronia bushed from Hidden Springs Nursery about 10 years old. They 
bear heavy crops every year. About three years back I picked over 5 gallon 
for a winery. Didn't weigh the berries.

I do eat a few hands full fresh from the bush. I spit out the pulp, swallow 
the juice. But I wouldn't set down to a bowel full!
