Orange blossom honey comes from the fragrant blossoms of the sweet orange tree. Buds begin forming in late January or early February, and the trees come into bloom in April. As it takes many months for the fruit to ripen, you can often see new blooms and ripe fruit on the tree at the same time.
Sunny, southern California is famous its sweet oranges, and is also the source for this yummy honey.
Orange blossom honey is normally Extra Light Amber in color. The flavor is mild, but very sweet, with just a hint of citrus. Because this honey variety is so sweet, it works well when mixed with other foods (such as plain yogurt) or for baking.
