Saw Palmeto is a bush or a small tree with a sprawling horizontal trunk and a round crown of large, fan shaped leaves.
If you live in southern Florida, you surely know it! Those tiny little palms grow along the ground and turn their crown to the sun, they are hard to miss.
It takes 100 years for this palm to grow big enough for honey bees to start the honey-making process. The pollen is plenty but the nectar is not so much, so this honey is produced in very small quantities. Real saw palmetto honey comes strictly from Florida.
Color: deep amber
Flavour: full bodied, citrusy, smoky, with woody overtones
