Acacia Honey

Acacia Honey

Call for Availability

Acacia honey is extremely light colored, almost white with golden yellow-green hues. The nose is delicately floral, fruity, and persistent. The flavor is sweet with hints of vanilla, slightly acidic, and has a long, clean floral finish. 

The Acacia tree (Robinia pseudoacacia) is native to eastern North America. The tree was widely planted in Europe and belongs to the same family of Fabaceae or Leguminosae (beans/legumes). In Italy, the trees grow from 30 to 70 feet and blossom in May to June, when you can smell their sweet blossom in the air. The bees are drawn to the white cluster of blossoms’calyxes filled with nectar, returning throughout the day for about ten days. Acacia honey production is not consistent every year: Acacia nectar is dependent upon the weather.

Acacia honey is the first honey children in Italy eat: many mothers give a spoonful of it before going to school. Acacia honey is also widely used in the preparation of baby food. It is also delicious to mix in yogurt or cream, as well as drizzle over fresh cheeses such as Ricotta and Stracchino. The perfect honey for glazing a roast chicken or for using in any sauce and marinades. Delicious over perfectly ripe peaches when in season.
