I have read that privet nectar can make honey taste bad. Just yesterday I saw bees all over FL privet at a native nursery near Orlando, and the nursery was also selling honey. As a matter of fact, the FL privet was the only flowering plant there which was consistently covered with honey bees. The bees for the most part ignored the others. I asked where the hives were, and the worker said that one was kept on the grounds. I did not purchase any honey, but she said it was very good. Do any of you know if the FL privet has the same problem as other privets allegedly have? It would seem if the bees are that anxious on it and it is a native plant, it must be getting into somebody's honey.
