Tupelo honey is produced from the blossoms of the white Ogeechee tupelo tree, which only blooms for 2-3 weeks every year. These trees are distributed along the borders of rivers, swamps, and ponds mainly in the remote wetlands of Georgia and Florida. Pure tupelo honey is light amber in color, with a pear-like and hoppy aroma and a coveted flavor that fans describe as mild, delicate, buttery, floral, like cotton candy and like rosewater. Because of its unusually high fructose content (versus sucrose), tupelo honey will not granulate. Also because of its low sucrose content, some diabetics may eat it. Certified tupelo honey is not heated, processed, or filtered.
