Why this Honey is very expensive?
« on: September 03, 2011, 11:53:11 AM »
I just read a topic about this honey called Yemen Sidr Honey. The topic mentioned that this honey is reputed to have many medicinal benefits and has an unusually high level of antioxidants. I also read that Sidr Honey increases sexual potency and helps with conception.

I googled the name of this honey,they sell each 1 kg for about $160  :shock:

Why this honey is expensive? have anyone of you tried this honey before?
I want to try it, but I want to see if somebody had it before? Does it deserve this much?

Waiting for your responses.

Thanks

It comes from the Hadramaut Mountains in the Southwestern Arabian Peninsula, where it is harvested only twice per year. The honey is from bees who feast only on the pollen of the Sidr tree, considered by many to be a holy tree and is one of the most resilient, ancient tree varieties in the area. Sidr honey is reputed to have many medicinal benefits ...

I still don't buy it, but that doesn't mean much anyway.

Funny that you just read about Sidr honey, yet your user name is 'Sidr' and you have conveniently left a link to a place that sells that product. If I were suspicious, ...

The original poster posts similar crap in other bee forums.  Don't bother to answer this.  You are wasting your time.

Sidr, I believe you got banned from the Got Mead web page for posting this exact same thread about your honey.
