The Honey

Orange Blossom honey is a monofloral honey, i.e. from one flower source, in this case the blossoms of orange trees.  This exotic variety of honey is sought out by beekeepers from all over the US. During a very short blooming period, beekeepers travel to the groves of Florida and California to gather as much pure Orange Blossom honey as they can. The brilliant aroma of this honey is intensely creamy and floral. The orange blossom’s aroma can actually be compared to that of the familiar honeysuckle.
