About the honey
Acacia is from a very big plant family, and can grow to be 6-8 meter high. The acacia often looks bushy and the flowers are round or oval with plenty of stamens. The leaves are normally double-finned and feather-like.
Acacia trees bloom in early spring, where the fragrant flowers attract bees with a large amount of nectar. The acacia tree, which typically grows along the Danube river in Eastern Europe, is only in bloom for about 14 days in early summer. Bees do not fly in case of rain, and frost will make the flowers fall to the ground. Thus, the production of acacia honey depends on the weather conditions in May.
Acacia honey is almost always liquid, due to the high fructose content. It is one of the most popular honey types, since it is mild and therefore suitable as sweetening agent.
