Unlike other types of honeys, Melata d'Bosco is not derived from the collection of blossom pollen. This unique honey is made by bees that collect special nectar secretion produced by different aphids. Aphids live on alpine fir, oak and linden trees and feeding on the sap therein. Production time is from July to September which is the 'high season' for insects. Aphids are gentle, any rain season can destroy the aphids which makes it not only rarest but also the most complicated.
The honeydew honey remains liquid for a long time, is very sticky and rarely crystallizes completely, has a color from dark amber to almost black, sometimes with greenish hues. Smell and taste is of medium intensity, and the taste is slightly sweet and persistent. Perfect for healthy life-style!
