In the mountains Locust blooms with Tulip Poplar, but you know everyone in NC sells Sourwood. There is more Sourwood sold than produced in my opinion.
Sucks for those of us that actually try to super our hives properly to capture good honey!
exactly ---- I see the same thing here, on occasion, with peach blossom honey and strawberry honey
No such thing --- everything in my area is suppose to be labeled Wildflower!
Generally I'd agree with you, but we have enough honey locust trees in the area to yield some varietal honey only in drought years when it blooms out of step with everything else. The DOT planted it for roadside beautification about 20 years back and it spread. This particular seller does not produce it every year, or in large quantities. It has a very distinctive karob flavor.
The local farmers market has enough raw honey enthusiasts to buy 10 times the locust honey he produces, if he wanted to dupe people. Everything else he sells is properly labeled wildflower. I think this one's legit.
