About the Plant Species

Hirschfeldia incana (formerly Brassica geniculata) is an annual species in the mustard family, known by many common names, including Shortpod mustard, Buchanweed, Hoary mustard and Mediterranean mustard. It is native to the Mediterranean Basin but it can be found in many parts of the world as an introduced weedy species. In Tenerife they grow in proximity of cultivated land, often in abandoned plots or on the boundaries between agricultural land and the natural environment. This honey is produced througout the island, chiefly on the Northern side of Tenerife. Map from la Casa de la Miel :

About the CANARIAN BEE HONEYS

Canarian honeys are known worldwide for their outstanding quality. They are produced from plants typical of the archipelago, sometimes endemic and threatened. Their production is fully sustainable and helps the conservation of island ecosystems. Our honeys come from certified producers and they are not pasteurized, so they keep intact their properties and extraordinary flavour.

Tenerife Honey now has a "Protected Origin Designation" since the European Union approved it in January 2014 as a traditional, specialty product. There are now 12 types of monofloral honey recognised from Tenerife. The EU Protected Food Name scheme highlights regional and traditional foods, whose authenticity and origin can be guaranteed.
