Honey

Honey

In the ancient world, Malta was well known for its specially-mixed and spicy honey. The Greeks even called the island Melite and the Romans Melita (derived from the word honey in the respective language ). The high quality of the honey is attributed to the large variety of flowers in Malta. The honey is a product of the various types of all-year-round flora; there are more than 1000 different species of flowers on Malta. Bees can stay within a radius of 8 kilometres of their beehive and collect sufficient nectar from over 200 species of flowers to produce one drop of honey. The honeybee has been native to the Maltese islands for centuries and is, compared to other bees in the Mediterranean region, very active, despite its smaller size. It has a dark colour and no yellow stripes . It is very resistant to disease. In addition to its unique taste, it is said that Maltese honey has healing characteristics, especially against colds and coughing.
