Southern Blue Gum (Eucalyptus globulus) is a giant tree with long slender leaves nearly as long as your forearm. It grows in rich damp gullies and can grow to 70 metres in height. The Southern Blue Gum has large cream flowers and gum nuts about the size of a ten cent piece. It flowers in spring.
Southern Blue Gums can be found in eastern NSW, eastern Vic. and Tas. Unfortunately many of these trees were cut down to make way for pine plantations in northeast Victoria before the 1970’s and there are few pockets left that are large enough to collect honey from.
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.”
