Florida White Tupelo Honey
9 oz jar -
Florida, USA

Tupelo honey is made from the blossoms of the Ogeche tupelo gum tree (Nyssa aquatica.) The tupelo gum tree grows in flooded forest areas in Southeast United States such as Florida, particularly in the Gulf Coast areas.

This honey is mainly produced commercially in areas along the Apalachicola and Ochlockonee river basins in Florida. Beekeepers keep beehives along the river swamps on platforms or floats during the short tupelo blooming season in order to produce certified, monofloral tupelo honey.

White tupelo honey is expensive to produce because, like all single varietal honeys, care must be taken by the beekeepers to clean the combs at the right time right when the white tupelo gum tree blossoms, so that only the nectar from these blossoms is collected.

It is a liquid honey, and because of it's sugar structure, it won't granulate or crystallize.
