I'm right there with you... 25 minutes N of Asheville. Haven't heard of kudzu as a honey plant...the only use I've heard is to make arrowroot powder from the roots. My husband is trying out the paleo diet, and that is the first time I've ever seen arrowroot powder used in anything!
I've harvested Kudzu honey before. It has a purple hue and is not a bad quality honey. Makes for a great late summer resource for the bees until the goldenrod blooms. It tends to be dependent on rain with more rain = more nectar. Dry years it will not produce.
