    Default Crabapple tree

    I don't know what type of Crabapple I have (dark pink flowers) but I was wondering if anyone has bees that cover crabapple blossoms and what the honey from them is like. Just curious... might be a dumb question...

    I have several crabapples on my farm in NC. Bees work them just like other fruit trees. Here it blooms before hive populations are large enough to make surplus honey.

    Now that you mention it I'm pretty sure it would be the same way here. I forget (still learning) that there is "their" honey and then surplus honey.
