Arbutus Honey is collected from the ravines and the verdant slopes of Mount Parnon in the Southeastern Peloponnese at an altitude of 200m. – 800m .Collected both from the nectar secretions of spring Kumaria (Arbutus Unedo) from April to early May and towards the end of autumn if the weather conditions allow.
It is a rare and special honey with high nutritional value and is (like heather honey) one of the best choices for toning the body.
It has a characteristic very full bitter taste & strong with aromatic notes of bitter caramel that is liked by demanding consumers, intense distinctive earthy aroma and a special dark copper color while its crystallization takes place very quickly (2-4 months from its collection).
