Florida Tupelo Honey with Comb - 16oz

Country of Origin: United States
Region: Florida
City / Village: Wewahitchka

This tupelo honey is produced by Don Smiley in Wewahitchka Florida. He produces the best tupelo honey we've found by carefully timing the movement of his hives so his bees can capture the purest white tupelo nectar possible. For this special †honey, he includes a slice of honey comb which can be removed and sliced for a particularly attractive presentation.

The bloom season (April - May) is short and the swampy environment of the Apalachicola River basin makes collection much more challenging than other honeys.

In order to certify a honey as tupelo, it only has to be certified as containing 50% tupelo honey. In a good season, Don's honeys are certified as containing 95% or more.

Tupelo honey does not crystallize because of its sugar makeup which is higher in fructose and lower in glucose than many other honeys. Because it doesn't crystallize even in its raw form, tupelo is a highly prized honey.
