Honey is a sweet and viscous fluid produced by honeybees from the nectar of flowers.
The flavor and color of honey are largely determined by the nectar source. Common flavors of honey include orange blossom, tupelo, buckwheat, clover, blackberry, and blueberry. In Australia, the most common honey is from the eucalyptus trees, such as redgum, yellow gum and stringybark. Tasmanian leatherwood honey is considered a delicacy for its unique flavor.
While it is rare for any honey to be produced exclusively from one floral source, honey will take on the flavor of the dominant flower in the region. Orange blossom, tupelo, and sourwood are favored types in the United States. Greece is famous for wild thyme honey, France for lavender and acacia honey and Italy for chestnut honey.
