Erica Manipuliflora Honey is mostly produced in the area of Giovanitsa, but also in the entire Mount Athos. The honey that comes from Erica is characterized as a honey of exceptional nutritional value, due to the high content of pollen grains. It is rich in silicon, boron and barium. It is very beneficial to the body and that is why it is mainly sold in health food stores.
Erica Manipuliflora Honey has a strong taste, a characteristic fine aroma and a special color, which in the beginning is greenish, while during the winter it becomes dark brown or reddish like cognac. It is collected from September to November (a very rich flowering period for the plant), but there are also years that the plant is not produced at all. For this reason, but mainly for its properties, the demanding consumers, who are aware of this fact buy this honey wherever and whenever they find it.
In France Erica Manipuliflora Honey is considered to be one of the best honeys, along with the Chestnut and Lavender Honey. The French produce the famous French gingerbread only with this honey.
