Summersweet Wildflower Honey Our 2022 Summer Sweet Wildflower Honey is a midsummer batch from the Killer Bees Honey home apiary. It has the same intense, robust flavor of our signature spring, raw Smoky Mountain Wildflower Honey, only slightly sweeter. There are several reasons for this. First, it possesses 20% clover nectar. Secondly, as the tulip poplar bloom ages, it produces more glucose. All of these factors make for a robust, but sweeter addition to our 2022 spring honey lineup. No limits on this seriously delightful honey - the bees were dangerously busy on this floral source!
Summer Blend Honey is a blend of both our wildflower and sourwood honeys. It is a treasure of every possible pollen and nectar source the bees collected throughout the growing season. Expect a bold, mineral rich, wildflower beginning followed by a long, sweet middle of the tulip poplar tree. It finishes with the flavors of caramel and anise distinctive of the sourwood tree.
We have two nectar flows in WNC; spring wildflower followed by the sourwood season. We add extra honey supers to the hives when the spring nectar flow overwhelms the bees storage capacity. These late spring supers are partially filled until the sourwood tree begins to bloom. The bees backfill these supers, thus creating their own special blend. Most beekeepers would sell this as sourwood. We don’t. We add empty supers for the separate sourwood flow.
