What is the color of honey?

January 21, 2015 South Mountain Bees

Honey comes in an amazing variety of colors, from transparent light to molasses like dark. It all depends on the floral source. Linden honey is among the lightest honey we can find in our area, with a light floral flavor. Tulip poplar is a bee’s favorite, they won’t go anywhere else until they collect all its nectar. Tulip poplar honey is dark amber. The season ends in New Jersey with Japanese bamboo in the Fall. It yields the darkest honey I’d ever seen. It is so thick that you can’t see through it even in a small jar.
