Honeydew is collected by bees on flowerless forest trees, such as oak trees, cedars and fir. Bees visit tree leaves after aphids deposit honeydew droplets on them.
Honeydews are characterized by a unique, soft and slightly sweet taste; they have a lot of character and have wooded or caramel flavors. They are generally dark in color and do not crystallize throughout the year.
Honeydews are typically warm honeys used during winter months. Rich in micronutrients, in iron and in minerals, they help fight fatigue and anemia and are very popular among athletes and senior people.
The slightly sweet taste of honeydews makes them very popular in the morning, savored alone or on toasted bread or served with milk, yogurt or cottage cheese.
