Big Island Wai Meli Honey 16 oz
Local gourment honey harvested seasonally from the Big Island.
Summer Blossom: A unique seasonal varietal captured in the high summer months in Kapaau, summer blossom exudes a bright sweetness and a hint of acidity rounded out by warm notes of brown sugar.
With a smooth mouthfeel of fresh crystallization, it’s a spreadable delight with a medium body that melts in the mouth. This seasonal exclusive is the perfect companion for any cheese platter, fresh baguette, or homemade granola.
Kiawe Coconut Blossom: Harvested in the late spring and early summer months on the Big Island, this Kiawe Coconut Honey is a rare and favorite.
Before the kiawe bloom is in full swing honeybees supplement their diet with nectar from the coconut palm. This varietal carries the aroma of honeysuckle and offers a light dewiness on the tongue. This raw honey is a team favorite for its unique taste and texture.
Lehua Blossom: Foraged from vibrant blossoms of the Ohi'a, a very special tree endemic to Hawai'i, our bees gather this unique honey in spring and summer from the forests surrounding our farm in Pa'auilo Mauka.
This light honey is elegant and sweet with delicate floral notes and occasional hints of buttered popcorn. Our Lehua Blossom honey is lightly crystallized and maintains a delightfully spreadable texture.
Christmas Berry Blossoms: Also known as Brazilian Pepper, or Wililaiki in Hawaiian, this non-native tree blossoms each year at a time when few other trees are flowering, making it an important crop for our honeybees. It provides a food source for the bees during this dearth period, and lucky for us, it also makes for delightful honey! The bright notes and well-balanced flavors in this harvest contain a hint of spiciness. This honey also has a subtle green hue in its meniscus, a reminder of the intense floral source from which it originates.
Kiawe Blossom: Widely prized across the island and beyond, pure Kiawe Blossom honey is a pure crystalline white honey. It is made from the nectar of the mesquite trees that have naturalized on the beaches of the Kona Coast. Evenly sweet with hints of powdered sugar, and fine delicate crystals, it’s a perfect match for toast, strawberries and cream, or as we often say - right by the spoonful.
