Peter Thompson, whose great-great-grandfather set up the soft fruit enterprise more than a century ago, has spent six years bringing the crop to fruition for the retailer.
The damp, mild weather at the Perthshire farm is particularly suited to growing the black fruit - which originates from North America and is similar in shape and size to a blueberry.
The aronia berry has three times as many antioxidants as the blueberry and is believed to contain more than any other berry.
M&S decided to sell the berry following increasing demand from customers for health-boosting fruits. Blueberry sales at M&S have risen 40 per cent in the past year.
M&S berries specialist Emmett Lunny said: "We are proud to bring one of the healthiest berries to the high street. Blueberries and raspberries are proving extremely popular as more and more people opt for fruit as a snack or pudding - but our research shows they are always on the lookout for something new.
"Aronia berries have a delicious, distinctive flavour as a sauce or in fruit pie."
The berry, which tastes tart when eaten raw, is expected to be a big hit with Britain's growing Polish population, as aronia juice is very popular in Poland.
It has a sharp taste and is mostly used in sauces for summer puddings, French style coulis sauces, cheesecake and juice.
