Honeydew is different from other honey as it is not derived from the nectar of the plant. Beech Forest Honeydew is sourced from New Zealand’s unique beech forests, found along the Southern Alps mountain range. A small scale insect living under the bark causes a honeydew to run down the outside of the tree, which is then collected by bees and turned into honeydew honey.
Beech Forest honeydew is a viscous liquid honey with a refreshing flavour that is not too sweet, with a spicy orange peel aroma.
Beech Forest Honeydew has many unique properties including high levels of oligosaccharides.
100% natural honey made from the sap of the New Zealand Beech tree.
WHY IS OUR HONEY SO UNIQUE?
Pure Vitality Honey’s native floral honey types have captured the pure quality essence of New Zealand. We travel from the coastal shores to the forests and meadows to harvest this natural raw honey.
Nowhere else in the world can you find native trees that produce an array of flora which is so unique and varied. With careful planning and optimum sites our beekeepers are able to collect a fine selection of distinct honey types.
Our beekeepers choose our sites carefully because each apiary location has its own special nuance and character and this is reflected in the honey when tasting it.
Each honey displays its own unique characteristics, texture and flavour. You will definitely have your preferred favourite but we think they are all delicious – naturally!
