if you ever break a branch of this you should smell it, some say it smells strongly of motor oil, i think it smells like peanut butter, lol. sorry to get off topic...Ohh let's add Ailanthus altissima to the list too. I hear that it has a very bitter tasting honey.
u can sure sya that again !!Don't know about the taste,But when they are bring in Goldenrod sure don't smell good,
I've got a bottle of it here. Tastes just the way a stale urinal smells. I couldn't give it away around here. It's just revolting. We did a 'honey tasting' some time back with some friends, had 7 different floral honey types. 3 of our friends actually spat the buckwheat honey out onto the table.>Buckwheat. It produces a revolting flavor of honey.
And yet it sells for $13 or more a pound...
A lot of it is in the taste buds of the consumer.
