The fruit is borne in clusters of about 15, it is more flavourful and the yield is about twice that of wild forms. Other cultivars developed mainly for their ornamental value include 'Viking' with extra large berries and 'Aron' with numerous large berries.

This genus is closely related to Sorbus species.Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus.
