    Default Japonese knotweed honey

    I just got a sample of comb yesterday from my top bar hive. It was very dark, almost as dark as coffee, and strong. Good tasting, delicious. It is my first year and I will harvest one large comb next week when it is capped over. I live near Pgh, Pa with lots and lots of japonese knotweed, in a suburban area. I don't see lots of goldenrod around here, but there may be. Is this consistent with what anyone knows of living near this invasive plant?

    That sounds like Knot Weed "powernapper" is up by Worthington Pa and he gets dark honey from Knotweed and I get some here also=dark as the tires on your truck

    Hello there neighbor laurelmtnlover- that knotweed honey is pretty good huh! Some of my honey customers prefer that knotweed honey over all others.

    Hi Younz all,
    Not to belabor the subject, but it seems the knotweed is in full bloom now. Why the dark color; I have been watching this uncapped for a couple weeks now. Unless the bloom lasts that long? It is as dark as coffee.
