The fine honeydew honey is collected by the bees from coniferous and deciduous trees. He has a aromatic-strong, almost malty taste, a light brown to reddish-bown colour and is usually viscous.
For 1 kg of honey, the bees need to collect about 3 kg of nectar or honeydew, which conforms about 60,000 honey-stomach fillings.
In order to fill this honey stomach once approx. 15 to 100 blooms (depending upon flower type) must be flown.
The bee can carry 50mg of nectar on each of her thrilling flights - by the way, this weight is one-third of her total body weight!
For example, bees need to visit around 900,000 to 1 million flowers for 1 kg of sweet honey.
During the lifetime of a bee, it produces an average of 2.5 to 3 grams of honey - but this requires it to collect three times the amount of nectar.
Especially considerable is the route of the bee:
For 1 kg of honey, the swarm of bees covers a distance of 40,000 to 120,000 km, depending on the flowering time. This corresponds to the single - triple earth circumference of the earth!
