Floral Source: The gallberry low bush (Ilex Glabra) is a member of the holly family. The bush produces small, white flowers that peak soon after the tupelo season ends. Many of the local residents like to call it "Holly Honey," so we do too.
Provenance: The lowbush gallberry grows wild in the abundant pine forests of Northern Florida. Our holly honey comes to you from Gulf County, Florida.
Color and Taste: Straight holly honey is extremely light in color; in some years it can be Water White. But the color can vary from year to year from Water White to Light Amber, based on other nectars that the bees might collect during the gallberry bloom. It has a very pleasant floral flavor, with faint smoky notes. It resists crystallization, and many of our customers report that it is a close second to tupelo honey.
