Far North Kanuka Blend – 97% Kanuka Pollens, 500g
The Kanuka tree is a cousin to the Manuka bush and its honey has different health properties. Its taste is strong and earthy, but not super-sweet compared with most honey types. This batch comes from the Far North region and tested out at 97% Kanuka/Manuka pollen. *
Raw and unpasteurized. Honey can be softened by heating it gently. Produced and packed by Don Buck Honey.
This honey has had a pollen count test done by a laboratory technician. Kanuka and Manuka pollen are very difficult to tell apart, and so are counted together. Since Manuka bushes are only in flower at the start of the season, and this batch was harvested toward the end of the 2019 season, most of the Kanuka/Manuka pollen counted in this batch will be Kanuka. Also, pollen counts do not necessarily equate to nectar content – but 97% pollen do indicate a very high Kanuka nectar content. For more on pollen count tests, please see here and here.
