Botanical Information

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.
