About the honey
It smells like pure summer, when the linden trees are in bloom. The linden tree is also referred to as the tree of love and joy, since the leaves are heart-shaped and the treetop looks like a big heart. It is one of the few big trees that is pollinated by bees and not the wind.
Linden trees can grow to be 30 m high and more than 300 years old. The trees grow naturally all over Europe, but mainly in the eastern part of Europe.
The linden tree is in bloom in July and has numerous small flowers, full of nectar that smell amazing. The flowers of the linden tree are hermaphrodites, i. e. both male and female. The flowers are white-yellow and have 5 petals, 5 sepals, plenty of stamens and a stigma in the middle. The linden flower contains a lot of nectar and is very attractive to bees and insects. They carry flower dust (pollen) from one flower to the next and pollinate the linden flowers.
Linden honey has a mild taste and a light colour. The texture is soft and pasty.
