This dark monoflower honey comes from the variety of Bull Banksia that occurs naturally in  South-West of  Western Australia. The Noongar peoples know the tree as beera, biara, boongura The cylindrical flower spikes are also very large and may be up to 40 cm long by 8-9 cm in diameter and pale yellow in colour. Flowering occurs from spring through to mid summer. The flowers are followed by very large fruiting cones. Also known as Banksia grandis.

Banksia grandis, despite its obvious horticultural features is not often seen in cultivation. It is generally slow growing and may take many years to flower from seed. However, the dramatic, large leaves are so attractive that it could be grown purely as a foliage plant. It is best suited to areas with a dry summer and can be difficult to maintain in humid areas. It requires sandy, well drained soils in full sun or partial shade. It is moderately frost hardy. It is reported to grow well in a large container. Propagation from seed is reliable without pre-treatment and cuttings may be successful but may be slow to strike with a success rate may be well below 100%.

The exquisite soft texture, rich caramel,  molasses aromas and intense sweetness creamy makes the Bull Banksia honey perfect for everyday uses.  The flavour is unique to each person which will be apparent when you  indulge your senses with this distincitve and exotic honey.

Bull Banksia  honey is not only rich in anti-oxidants,  but it adds another layer of flavour to your cereal, smoothies,  and raw bliss cereal balls.
