What is May Honey: Early Summer Honey, Spring Honey
May Honey also know as Early Summer honey; it is collected by bees from the earliest flowering in May.
Color: 45 – 80 mm Amber
Color of May honey can vary, depending on which plants or trees bees collect nectar from, varying from yellow to brown. After maturity of 3-5 months it darkens and becomes darker Amber color with red hues.
Its aroma varies from mild to sharp, when first collected it has strong hints of early blooming fruit trees.
May blossom of willow, maple, oxalis, bird cherry, strawberry, cherry, currant, Sage, Apple and many other plants that bloom in May give this type of hone a very floral sweet taste. The initial taste after collecting raw honey in May does not particularly stand out, but after its maturation, which takes from 3 to 5 months, the honey becomes an extraordinarily bright glowing gold color with a flavor of ripened and sweet fruit.
Crystallization Rate: Mild to Fast
This sweet May honey is rich in fructose which allows it metabolize quicker than other varieties and to be naturally assimilated by our body. Due to the high fructose content it starts to crystallize faster after maturity.
