Saw Palmetto Honey

saw palmetto honeySaw palmetto honey is a bi-product from the production of saw palmetto berries that is coveted for its extract containing from 85% to 98% fatty acids and sterols and used as an herbal support for prostate enlargement worldwide. The saw palmetto plant, (Serenoa repens), is a miniature palm with a lazy trunk and stems that sport an array of opposing saw teeth from the truck to the fronds (leaves). The small palm trunk may be 3 or 4 feet long and laying flat on the ground with the palm head turned upright and the palm fronds rising four to five feet in the Gourmet Honey Now

The saw palmetto produces fruit once a year, about the size the size of an olive and also has a pit (seed) inside. The saw palmetto fruit are handpicked, dried into a powder, then converted into a liquid for encapsulation. The honey bee starts this process by pollinating the saw palmetto blossom. Saw palmetto honey is produced, from the miniature palm, profusely during the bloom season. This saw palmetto honey is a gourmet honey that is seldom tasted outside the borders of Florida. Real estate development, drainage, fires and encroachment of man has begun to shrink the borders of this one time rampant growing plant that greeted Ponce de Leon hundreds of years ago.

Native Florida Crackers smiled at the tourist for years as they sold them orange blossom honey and kept the true jewel, saw palmetto honey for themselves. This gourmet delight is on the “threatened” list and may one day soon be a fond memory when the last supply of Florida indigenous saw palmettos have been bulldozered into a pile and burned. The last gasp of hope for saw palmetto honey is the saw palmetto berry which hand pickers are paid over $5.00 a pound and land owners now guard their supply of berries with guard dogs and shotguns.

Saw palmetto honey is one of the honey greats that will change your mind about buying blended honey from the store shelf. With the international honeybee plight, saw palmetto honey will be in short supply. Support your local beekeeper, his bees will pollinate up to 40% of the food you will eat next year! We need more bees, more beekeepers to preserve our food source! Buy palmetto honey.
