    Default American Holly honey

    I took off my first honey a week ago. We have an abundance of American Holly trees. The honey tastes great but has an overwhelming floral smell. Is this normal for honey from Holly flowers?


    Any experience with holly?

    Last year I got a good gallberry harvest, which I thought was orange blossom at the time. The other day I walked past a gallberry bush and instantly recognized the smell.

    People who got it from me commented on the "floral" taste and like it. Now I know not to call it orange blossom honey. It's in bloom now and I hope for a good harvest again--with my additional hives this year.

    Does Holly honey crystallize quickly?
