Description
The two main sources of habit, Calluna heather and - in much smaller proportions - the bell heather (Erika) determine the strong, flowery aroma of our heather honey.
The aromatic but sweeter Erika harmoniously softens the otherwise very strong aroma of pure Calluna.
In the liquid state, real heather is always gelatinous with trapped air bubbles and is reddish-brown and candied later yellowish.
The Heidetracht begins at the beginning of August and ends at the beginning of September. In contrast to fruit or oilseed rape, heather is a decidedly late crop.
From the summer solstice, the bees are already preparing for the winter and the population decreases noticeably for the heathland.
However, fewer bees "in the hive" also mean less harvest.
As a beekeeper, you have to ensure that the brood falls in good time or even strengthen the bee families with brood combs so that there are enough foraging bees on the heath.
Not only the "bee management" is quite complex, but also the centrifuging - due to the gelatinous character of the heather - requires considerable more effort than a blossom honey.
And yet the yields are perhaps a third of the rapeseed harvest.
These circumstances result in a higher price.
