Tallow Tree Honey

Tallow Tree Honey has a slight bitterness which balances the natural sweetness of honey, Tallow Honey is a medium to full-bodied honey. On the coastal prairie along the Texas Gulf Coast grows a tree that was introduced into the Houston area in the 1950s as an ornamental landscaping tree. The Chinese Tallow Tree (Triadica sebifera) has a beautiful red heart shaped leaves in the fall along the coast making it one of the few trees to show "true colors" in that area. Honey bees and beekeepers love it. The golden tags literally drip nectar from them mid-May to mid-June every year
