Re: Really dark orange blossom honey
We had the lightest orange blossom honey this year than I have seen in many years. Many of my customers said the same thing. The freeze we had this winter really knocked back the other wildflowers which normally grow in the groves during the orange bloom like spanish needle which tends to darken the honey some. Ive questioned some of the "dark" orange blossom i have seen on the shelves also, but I cant speak for those beekeepers, the areas they were working, and what else might have been blooming.
