Honey Varietals

Honey Varietals

The color, flavor, and even aroma of a particular variety of honey may differ depending on the nectar source of flowers visited by the honey bee. The colors may range from nearly colorless to dark brown, the flavor may vary from delectably mild to distinctively bold, and even the odor of the honey may be mildly reminiscent of the flower.

Varietal honeys may be best compared to varietal wine in terms of annual climactic changes.  Even the same flower blooming in the same location may produce slightly different nectar from year-to-year depending upon temperature and rainfall.

NOTE: Some of the honey varietal names listed below may not correlate with a particular floral source, but rather are provided by the company selling a particular honey listed in the Honey Locator.  They are included in the varietal listing below as a tool to help consumers find a particular honey they might be looking for, and as a service to the participating honey companies.
