Fir Tree Honeydew

Current Production Area in the Park
Bagno di Romagna, Bibbiena, Chiusi della Verna, Poppi, Pratovecchio, S. Sofia, Stia.

It has a dark brown color, almost black with green reflections; if it is pure, it undergoes a very slow crystallization process. Its taste is sweet, aromatic, and the balsamic features deriving from its richness in resins can be immediately appreciated.

Product Seasonality
The availability of the fir tree honeydew is strictly linked to the seasonal climatic changes. As a matter of fact, the worker bees are influenced by the weather in their activity of gathering of the lymph at the altitudes where they find the fir trees.
