The gallberry low bush (ilex glabra) is a member of the holly family, with spiked evergreen leaves. In June, the plants produce small, white flowers. Many locals use the nickname holly honey for this variety.
Gallberry bushes grown in abundance in the pine forests of Northern Florida. Several different beekeepers produce this honey for us, and they set out their hives in various locations in Gulf, Liberty and Clay counties.
Raw, unfiltered holly honey is very light in color, ranging from White to Extra White. It has a very pleasant floral flavor, with faint smokey notes. It resists crystallization, and is our second most popular honey variety (after tupelo, of course).
I love the holly honey it tastes so good and Smiley got my honey here quickly and it was packaged up real good!
Holly Honey from WEWA is the best!
The honey has a beautiful light quality that is sweet without any undertones
or woody taste. LOVE IT!
While I would prefer Tupelo honey (which I've used for more than 40 years), the price is prohibitive in the current situation; but the Smiley (both previous and present owners) has always been outstanding.
it's a nice product.
we use it every day since last summer to prevent allergies
I just tried four different honeys from your company. I was amazed at the value and quality for the price. The holly honey was superb. It had an unexpectedly bright flavor that bursts a floral perfume scent on your tongue, and is then chased by more complex flavors. As an amateur connoisseur, I have 30 or more honey varieties from around the world. Your holly and sourwood rival hone that I have from Greece and Sicily. Thank you so much for your amazing honey and great prices. You have a new fan!
