The Melnovus orange blossom honey (raw) is harvested from hives where the bees only pollinate orange trees. In South Africa, orange trees mostly grow in Limpopo.
This type of honey is called a monofloral honey. This means simply that the bees pollinated one type op flower predominantly.
Many farmers in South Africa use bees to naturally pollinate their trees. This enables the trees to produce flowers and then fruit. The natural byproduct of this process is raw honey.
Bees always produce raw honey. Orange blossom honey stays raw and pure when it is not heated, heavily filtered or irradiated.

Orange raw honey has a hint of orange, or citrus, taste to it. However, this is only a hint. It is also a little sweeter compared to Multiflora Raw Honey.
