Alpine Ash is a species of eucalypt that can grow from 50 metres and occasionally up to 90 metres tall. This majestic tree produces both nectar and pollen. Interestingly it only produces significant honey around once a decade, which is a reflection of how infrequently this tree flowers.
Alpine Ash trees have a long straight trunk with stringy fibrous bark around the base and white smooth bark above. Alpine Ash flowers between December and March. Source: Flora of Victoria, Royal Botanic Gardens.
Alpine Ash grows along the Great Dividing Range, in cool mountainous regions and is often found just below the snow line. It prefers deep soils on steep slopes.
The flavours of single varietal honey reflect a plant source and its unique flowers, pollen and nectar. Our Single Varietal honeys are a true reflection of nature with each plant species creating distinctly different colours, tastes and textures of honey.
“Our aim is to educate people on the diversity of uses for honey and the fact 65% of Australia’s agricultural produce is pollinated by honeybees. This reveals just how important they truly are to our food security.”
