How green is it?  We get somewhat green-tinged honey, sometime for us it would be the linden tree.  Is yours green-tinged or full-out grinch-green?

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I dunno, is the wax green perhaps or is it green once extracted? Only way it can be green honey is if it is contaminated with something. Plaintain has green pollen at certain stages but I dont think any plant we have here would make green honey.

I have seen plants in Vic that have purple pollen that may turn the honey green.. ie the mixing of blue (blue and red) and golden (yellow and red)

But the truth is I have no clue

YV,

Are you any closer in figuring out why your honey is green? This is intriguing!

We have a green-tinged honey here in Florida from the Brazilian pepper.

Hi, nah, haven't figured it out yet. I'll know when I ask the other beekeepers in the area. If not someone will know at the meeting in a couple of weeks. I like the idea of Irish honey though Tongue.

Chao,
