Floral Source: Orange blossom honey comes from the flowers of sweet orange tree (Citrus Sinensis), which is also the Florida state flower. Buds begin forming in late January or early February, and the blossoms generally open in April. As it takes many months for the orange fruit to develop and mature, you can sometimes see trees laden with fruit that are also in full bloom.
Provenance: Sunny, central Florida is famous for miles and miles of orange groves. Our orange blossom honey comes to you from Polk County, which is the top citrus producing county in Florida.
Color and Taste: Orange blossom honey is Extra Light Amber in color. The flavor is mild, but very sweet, with just a hint of citrus. Because it is so sweet, it works well mixed with other foods, such as vanilla yogurt, or drizzled on some vanilla ice cream. It also works very well in baked goods. This honey tends to crystallize rather quickly, but this is a natural change that is easily reversed by placing the jar in some hot water (100-110 degrees or so).
