Description

Excerpt from Hawaiian Honeys Hawaiian honeys consist of two quite distinct types: (1) A oral product which compares very favorably with the official definition of honey and is derived mainly from the owers of algeroba, and (2) a honeydew product very decidedly abnormal in its chemical composi tion. Between these two types, and partaking of some of the char acteristics of each, are natural honeys that are the result of some of the bees in a hive visiting owers where oral nectar is gathered and others visiting sugar cane where honeydew is collected. The nectar and the honeydew are deposited together in the comb, and the char acter of this product is determined by the relative proportions of the two collected and stored by the bees. So long as there is an abun dance of owers, the honey produced will be wholly of the first type, but as the supply of oral nectar decreases the bees visit the cane fields, where they collect honeydew, and when there is a dearth of owers honeydew alone is collected. This condition results in natural combinations of the two types, which show every gradation from the pure oral product to that derived wholly from honeydew.
