Oregon Scotch Broom Honey

Scotch Broom (Cytisus scoparius) is one of Oregon’s many invasive plant species. We do NOT plant this species, but also can’t keep the bees out of it. This honey variety is special because the bees work extra hard to collect it. Scotch Broom has a unique method for releasing its pollen; honeybees have to work hard to “trigger” the flower to release pollen. Honeybees push against the petals stimulating the plant’s stamen to rise. Then, an explosive pollen release follows covering the bee in what looks like cheeto-dust as they fly away.

Although cheeto-flavored honey sounds interesting, the actual flavor of this unique varietal is quite different. Scotch Broom honey has a tangy, apricot flavor. It also tastes like what lily flowers smell like. Now, if that isn’t a good combination, we don’t know what is!

Note: Our Scotch Broom Honey is pure, raw, and unadulterated, and may crystalize as a result. This is to be expected of natural honey and does not impact the usability of the product.

    Ok I’m guilty. I admit that I pour myself a big 2tablespoon helping of this Scotch Broom honey and lick it right out of the measuring spoon. It’s also great in hot tea, coffee, and my protein drinks. Most definitely a reorder.
