Southwest Mesquite

If you think it's going to be spice, you would be wrong, it is after all a honey! Velvet mesquite, is a small to medium-sized tree, that is actually a legume adapted to a dry, desert climate. A burst of spring rain can transform the arid Arizona landscape and the indigenous mesquite tree into a dramatic rainbow of life - especially the flower of the Southwest Mesquite tree.

This creamy-style honey is made by busy bees when the mesquite tree blooms in the spring. Although mostly mesquite, it might have hints of Cats Claw, Prickly Pear and Acacia.
