harvest location

The honey in this jar is from Eucalypt Trees in the Cooloola Region and surrounding districts in Queensland. See the maps below showing the general area where this honey is from. 

time since last harvest

Eucalypt Blossom comes from a variety of  trees which typically only yield honey every 3 to 5 years.

harvest weather conditions

Weather conditions were dryer than the long term averages when this honey was harvested, resulting in good flows. When the trees are stressed due to low rainfall they yield the most honey .......providing their roots are down deep where the moisture is.

tree name (s)

Due to the large number of varieties of Eucalypt Trees flowering at the same time, it is sometimes impossible to distinguish a dominant flavour, but this honey will include nectar from some of the following species; Grey Iron Bark, Brush Box, White Ironbox, Pink Bloodwood, Swamp Mahogany, Tallow wood, Blackbutt, Swamp Messmate and Mountain Coolabah.

flowering period

These Eucalyptus trees, along with many other native species in the Cooloola Region and surrounding districts, provide all year flowering opportunities for our bees.  As a general rule, Boxes flower throughout the year , Bloodwoods from April to December, Gums from June to November, Ironbarks from April to December and Tea trees from April though to February.
