Red Mangrove Honey
Red Mangrove honey is a premium amber colored honey unique to the Florida Keys.
In the Florida Keys, Red Mangroves usually flower slightly later than the black mangroves. As the black mangrove floration starts to tail off in July, the bees gradually turn their attention to the remaining red mangroves, and later to the much less common white mangroves and buttonwood. This gradual blending of nectars from distinct species gives our mangrove honeys its distinct and delicious taste, unique to the Florida Keys.
In return for their nectar, our bees pollinate a huge number of mangrove flowers, which eventually leads to many new mangrove seeds and young plants, enriching the entire local ecology.
