The Heather plant is a typical element of the evergreen Mediterranean scrub. The name derives from the Greek Erikein, to break, in allusion to the fragility of its branches. It is a rather difficult honey to produce in purity due to the precocity of flowering in a period in which the bee families are not always sufficiently developed to exploit the nectar and therefore produce honey.

Flower (Latin): Erica Arborea (Ericaceae)


It goes well with tasty cheeses and served raw with pork meat. Excellent in the preparation of infusions and as a table honey.
