OHIA LEHUA HONEY FROM THE NANAWALE FOREST
Available only in Hawaii, Ohia Lehua Honey is one of the world's rarest honey varietals and also the pride and joy of Big Island beekeepers. When freshly extracted from the honeycomb, Ohia Lehua Honey has a light buttery yellow color, a thick creamy consistency, and a subtle yet complex sweetness. Within just weeks of harvesting, this honey naturally crystallizes into a thick, opaque whitish honey, making it a perfect spread on fresh toast and butter, with cheese and crackers, or eaten plain by the spoonful!
This year, Pualani Bee Farm has placed a few hives onto a small piece of our land in the neighboring Nanawale Forest. The property is located on top of an 1860 lava flow which is now heavily covered with Ohia Lehua trees. By relocating some of our hives to our Nanawale property during the seasonal Ohia Lehua nectar flow, from May through July, we have ensured a spring harvest of this rare single-species honey varietal.
