    Default Mango Honey?

    I have a huge mango tree in my yard. I didnít think it was much use to my bees until I looked at the fallen and damaged fruit. It looks like bees are collecting mango juice.

    It will be interesting to see if I can taste mango in the honey. 67B52840-6461-4625-9E62-D4E49852F1DF.jpg

    Interesting, keep us posted.
    Some days it's not even worth chewing through the restraints.

    They are probably just using the juice as water? honeys made from nectar.

    The hives are on a fresh water canal bank. No shortage of water available. I’m sure they are using the sugar in the mango juice for energy. Probably not making honey.
