Please do not be put off by the unfortunate name, chokeberries produce a fruit very like a currant but are a lot easier to grow. 

We have two species of chokeberries  available at the moment: 

The black chokeberry, Aronia melanocarpa, growing to 1 - 1.5 m with glossy black berries in late summer of about 8 - 10 mm;
The purple chokeberry, Aronia prunifolia, which can get up to 2 m in a sheltered spot with dark red berries of about 6-8 mm that can hang on the plants into the late autumn.

Both do not require any fancy pruning, are happy in any soil, in sun or part shade, with lovely white flowers in the spring and colourful leaves in the autumn.
