Nelson Honey’s Honeydew is dark in colour, with a similar taste to golden syrup or treacle. This runny honey does not crystallise in cooler temperatures and is delicious with plain yoghurt, on toast, in drinks (smoothies!) or with your cereal each morning.
In contrast to most other honeys, Honeydew Honey is not a floral honey. Instead it is the product of two insect types working to create a delicious and unique honey. Small scale-insects inhabit the beech forests and produce a sticky liquid which is collected by honeybees foraging in remote native Black Beech forests in the South Island of New Zealand. Honeydew is only sourced in certain areas of New Zealand and if you’ve been out tramping around the South Island you will have picked up on the sweet honey smell around some Beech forests and the sound of bees, wasps and Tuis that are all drawn to the drops of Honeydew sticking out from the bark of Beech trees.
Nelson Honey mainly collect their Honeydew Honey from the pristine Nelson Lakes area inland from Nelson City where the environment is clean and natural and unaffected by pollution.
Honeydew Honey contains complex sugars called Oligosaccharides, it also contains higher levels of antioxidants compared to other floral honeys.
