The flavor and color of honey depends on the flowers and nectar from which it is made. Beekeepers who have access to large fields or groves of a particular crop may be pretty well assured that their honey is from orange blossoms or tupelo blossoms or clover blossoms, etc. We don’t have a good way to know the exact source for our honey so we call it wildflower honey but we definitely get different types of honey. This year, we extracted three separate varities of honey.
It is a bit of work to watch the honey in the frames to know when the variety changes. Honey in the frame is covered by wax which is opaque. We can sort of see the color of the honey behind it but it is fairly subjective. Individual frames are often of the same variety though not always. Bees just store the nectar that is available at a given time and don’t care a single bit whether we can easily separate the different types of honey. They are funny that way.
Anyhow, the darkest honey is likely from tulip poplar since it is dark and has a red tint. The other types are unclear to me. They are all excellent! We bake cookies and bread with it. We eat it on pancakes, in tea, on biscuits. Sometimes I just eat it by the spoonful! There is more about the 2008 honey harvest here
