The autumn Heather Honey (sousoura) is collected at the end of autumn with a different taste from the heather collected in spring. It has a characteristic full flavor with aromatic caramel notes, intense earthy aroma of heather flowers and a special red-copper color that turns into a wonderful caramel color after crystallization.

Heather Honey (sousoura) is honey with a very high nutritional value and is one of the best choices to stimulate the body. It has a characteristic full taste with aromatic caramel notes, intense earthy aroma of heather flowers and a special red-copper color that turns into a wonderful caramel color after crystallization which takes place very quickly due to its high natural content of glucose and pollen grains (1-3 months from its collection).

It is collected from the nectar secretions of the autumn heather (September to October) also known as "sousoura" - (Erica verticillata) but also some years against the beginning of spring. It is often the years that it is not produced at all. For this reason the demanding consumers who know it, get it wherever and whenever they find it!

Particularly tonic for bees. For connoisseurs, successful flowering is equivalent to a second spring for the bees! In France, this honey is one of the best French honeys, along with chestnut and lavender. The French make - only with this honey - the famous French gingerbread.

According to research conducted by the Beekeeping Laboratory of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki by Ms. Tananaki, the antioxidant & bacterial action of 9 pure Greek honeys were studied, as well as the well-known Manuka honey produced in New Zealand. From the above research it was found that heather honey had the high antioxidant activity as well as the high percentage of total phenols. A full presentation of the research can be found at the end of the text in the section "Scientific articles"
