Fir honeydew is dark brown, almost black, with green reflections; if pure, it faces a very slow crystallization process. The taste is sweet, aromatic, and the balsamic characteristics determined by the richness of resins can immediately be appreciated.
Seasonality of the product
The availability of the fir honeydew is closely linked to the seasonal climatic trend. As a matter of fact, in their activity of collecting sap at the altitudes where the fir woods are present, bees are heavily influenced in their work by the weather.
