Unless somehow you know a honey is exclusively some varietal take care when selling any with such a claim.  New testing is allowing both the quick determination of if a honey has been adulterated, but also what plant the nectar came from.  I say this as it is as I understand it not terribly plausible for a bee hive to exclusively have any one kind of source. 

What I do, because I do sell to the public, I say that my spring honey is "Primarily" whatever plant I think it is.  keeps the hair splitters out of your hair.

That is a nice looking honey!
Good advice, BAH.  I?m not selling any honey this year though, since this was my first honey harvest. I?m keeping it all to myself! :tongue:  :cheesy:  :grin:
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.
