Tupelo honey is a true premium product and is well-known by honey lovers. Tupelo trees are located in only a few places in the US, and the largest numbers are found in our neck of the woods along the Apalachicola and Chipola River basins. Tupelo tree blossoms are notoriously fragile, and the weather must be "just right" to produce an abundant honey crop. In good years, tupelo trees will bloom for only a few weeks. In bad years, the nectar flow is over in a few days. Years of experience and good beekeeping skills are required to produce great tupelo honey. Our tupelo honey has an amazing flavor profile. It has a bright and unique floral burst that dissolves easily on the tongue, and has a very pleasing finish. It has a dewy freshness that contrasts starkly with over-processed, common honey varieties. One customer told us: "I tasted this honey from someone who thinks this is food from the Gods . . . and wow he was right!" At Smiley Honey, we could not agree more.
