A typical cherry blossom honey is hard to come across, but we got you covered! This creamy honey is the perfect pair for a good Gruyère. We also enjoy it in teas and coffee. Its fruity character makes it a good combination with peaches and apricots!
The wild cherry tree is a deciduous tree that reaches heights of growth of 50 to 65, rarely up to 115 feet. These cherry trees are very important for the bees after the long and cold winter. Bees use the nectar and pollen from nectar trees to strengthen their hive population.
The mountainous region around the city of Kassel is characterized by numerous wild and also cultivated cherry groves. Gentle green mountain slopes, forests, streams and meadows are lined with cherry trees. When the first rays of the sun warm the air in the spring, the cherry is one of the first blossoming trees and attracts the bees with its delicate flowers and its subtle fragrance.
