Honey

We have selected honeys produced exclusively by Sicilian Black Bee, with high nutritional value from the best sicilian blooms.

The Sicilian black bee (Apis mellifera siciliana) has a dark abdomen, yellow down and small wing. Sicily has been its home for millennia, but it risked extinction after being abandoned in the 1970s, as beekeepers got rid their traditional rectangular beehives made from dried fennel stalks and began importing the italian bee (Apis mellifera ligustica) from northen Italy.

The Sicilian bee is docile and very productive,even in hot weather (it can withstand temperatures over 40°C, when other bees stop working) and can tolerate sudden temperature changes.

The Sicilian Black Bee is a Slow Food Presidium for biodiversity protection.
