Tupelo Honey FAQ

What is Tupelo Honey?
Tupelo honey is a rare variety of honey produced by honeybees that collect nectar from the blossoms of the White Tupelo (Nyssa Ogeche) tree. This unique honey is predominantly harvested in and around the Apalachicola and Choctawhatchee River systems  in NorthwestFlorida, although the trees can be found as far north as south Georgia in lower concentrations.

What Makes Tupelo Honey Unique?
Renowned for its delicious taste, rarity, and resistance to crystallization, pure Tupelo honey boasts a light amber color with a pear-like and hoppy aroma. It offers a unique flavor, that is smooth and buttery, with a delicate aftertaste like cotton candy that lingers pleasantly. Its high fructose content prevents granulation, making it more shelf stable than other liquid honey options.

Where is Tupelo Honey Produced?
The purest Tupelo is produced where the highest concentration of trees are located along the river systems of Northwest Florida.  The wetland habitat in this area is ideal for Tupelo trees to thrive. The honey's production and harvesting during its short bloom in April requires precise and labor-intensive beekeeping. The bloom can last from just a few short days to around two weeks if the weather cooperates.

What Types of Tupelo Trees Produce Tupelo Honey?
There are many varieties of Tupelo trees, but Tupelo honey references the honey produced from the White Ogeechee Tupelo  tree (Nyssa ogeche).

Why is Tupelo Honey Considered Premium?
Its limited and labor intensive production, specific regional origins, unique flavor profile, lack of crystallization, and lower glycemic index all contribute to Tupelo honey's premium status. The challenges of harvest and environmental threats add to its rarity and desirability among enthusiasts.

How is Tupelo Honey Made?
During the month of April when the Tupelo trees begin to produce nectar, beekeepers strategically place hives by moving them into specially selected and highly coveted locations in and along the river systems closest to the highest concentration of Tupelo trees. Once the nectar flow is well underway, all honey supers are removed and replaced with empty boxes of comb. The bees bring in the Tupelo and put it in these empty combs. The beekeeper has to be incredibly diligent in the timing of the flow, as these boxes must be removed as the Tupelo trees slow down nectar production and/or other plants begin to produce heavy amounts of nectar that could compete with the Tupelo tree. This protects the purity of the honey and is very difficult and important to produce the good stuff! The harvested honey is then carefully extracted to preserve its natural qualities, with minimal processing to maintain purity.

How Does Tupelo Honey Benefit Health?
Tupelo honey contains antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, offering various health benefits. It has antimicrobial properties and may support wound healing and soothe sore throats. Its lower glucose to fructose ratio may be preferable for individuals with certain dietary restrictions, though those with diabetes should consult healthcare professionals.
