Patience is Required for Saw Palmetto Honey

Palmetto Honey is unique among honeys, in part due to the extraordinary circumstances necessary for its production. In early spring an impressive three-foot-long flower stalk emerges and sprouts dozens of tiny white buds that provide a great source of nectar for bees. However, the saw palmetto plant is a slow-growing shrub and it takes about 100 years to produce enough nectar in its flowers to entice the honey bees. It takes an incredible amount of patience from the beekeepers and several mature palmetto plants to produce this unique and rare honey.
