Aronia melanocarpa, Black Chokeberry, is a super berry that contains five times more antioxidants than acai berry and forty times more than tomatoes, an ideal plant for preventing and treating some diseases. With proper soil treatment, Aronia can produce more antioxidants. I compare results of treatment with organic and non-organic soils.
