    Mine made mostly Rape/Canola honey. I don't particularly like it only for the fact that it crystalizes QUICK!

    mine made a decent amount early, apple, cherries, service berry, etc... i pulled those supers august 1st and extracted, and put them back on wet and made a good crop of mostly knapweed with a little clover. pulled that last week of august. i averaged 70 pounds per hive on about 75 hives, and they went into winter too heavy.
