Kinds of Greek honey
There are two big categories of honey. Blossom honey, which is produced by flower nectar, and forest honey (honeydew honey), which is produced by honey emissions of insects that live mainly in forest trees.
Blossom honey, when a specific type of honey related flora is at its peak, gets the name of that prevalent plant. Namely thyme honey, heather honey, orange tree honey etc. The same applies to honeydew honey, its main categories pine tree honey, fir honey, and oak honey.
Crystallization and quality
Crystallization is a natural phenomenon, unrelated to the quality of honey and does not cause any change to its nutritional value. It liquefies easily if placed in hot water within a jar or heated in temperatures lower than 45°C without losing its biological and nutritional capacities.
Blossom honeys as a rule crystallize in 1 to 8 months on average after they are collected, while pine tree honey and fir honey do not crystallize.
We produce three kinds of honey:
– Spring blossom honey, which is harvested early June
– Blossom honey from mountain wild wildflowers, which is harvested usually mid August
– Forest honey from coniferous trees, which is harvested in September and October.
