“There are a number of subspecies of Apple Box but the most common and valuable for honey production is Eucalyptus bridgesiana. Apple Box typically produces honey every two to four years. It is a favourite of beekeepers because it flowers in Autumn giving bees plenty of pollen (needed for breeding) and honey as a winter food source.
Apple Box is a small to medium-sized tree with rough bark that grows to 25 metres at its tallest. It often has a short, thick trunk with a large crown of foliage. Source: Flora of Victoria, Royal Botanic Gardens.
Apple Box grows in the high country of north east Victoria and along the Great Dividing Range into NSW and southern Qld. It is common near rivers and creeks and also on hillsides in heavy alluvuIal soils.
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.”
