The orange blossom honey, or orange, lemon and mandarin orange blossom honey, is a honey produced mostly by the nectar of the flowers of citrus trees, such as the aforementioned orange, lemon, mandarin and clementine. Therefore, it is a very typical honey of the Mediterranean area where such trees abound, and especially, of the Valencian Community, as is our case.
Its collection date is usually in spring, which is when citrus fruits are in bloom and the bees come to rid their nectar of orange blossoms. Although there are certain areas where the trees give a second flowering in early autumn that make it possible to collect them again.
