Wow! This highly prized Canarian honeydew-honey includes a lot of nectar and secretions collected from banana inflorescences, and also from the insects honeydew existing there and in the neighbouring avocado orchards. It is very smooth and not as sweet as most honeys. VERY HEALTHY! It is produced in Northern Tenerife, during the warmer months.
What is Honeydew ?
Bees do much more than stealing fower nectar! Honeydew is a sugar-rich sticky liquid, secreted by aphids and some scale insects as they feed on plant sap. When their mouthpart penetrates the phloem, the sugary, high-pressure liquid is forced out of the gut's terminal opening. The more ecological is the orchard, the more honeydew bees will catch. Other secretions produced by trees (not flower nectar) are also collected.
