What is Hawthorn Honey?

By Honey Blog

Hawthorn Honey is a rare variety with unique taste and beneficial properties. It is made from honey bees collecting nectar from the bloom of Hawthorn trees and bushes.

Hawthorn honey is harvested during the blooming of the hawthorn trees and bushes. The exact time of bloom can vary depending on the specific type of hawthorn tree and geographical location, but generally hawthorn trees and bushes bloom in spring time between April and June.

The blossom is bright white with petals and look like little starbursts of colour when they bloom. The berries are red or black, depending on whether they’ve been pollinated by birds or bees.
