Read on for more details about the origin, taste and uses of this honey.

Hidden away beyond the mountains, canyons and ravines of Oaxaca state in south-western Mexico lie the tropical bays of the Pacific coast where heliocarpus "Moho" trees grow in abundance.

This honey is produced by the bees who feed on the nectar primarily from these trees and from the golden sunflowers surrounding these trees.

The scientific name for the Moho tree genus is heliocarpus. The word heliocarpus means "sun-seed" in Greek. It is named after the appearance of the Moho Tree fruit, which has a halo-like fringe of bristles around the seed, making it look like the blazing sun.

The Moho tree is a large tree, growing up to 30m in height. The 16-20cm long leaves are covered in reddish hairs.

Tasting notes: Fresh melon and candied citrus peel notes that blend into subtle aftertones of cinnamon and refreshing mint

Texture: Part-set part-runny honey which crystallises quickly due to its high pollen content

Aroma: Fresh, fruity and floral

Sweetness: light

This honey tastes delicious straight from the spoon, or mixed into cold water, it makes a nutritious and refreshing drink. It is tasty over toast or porridge, or with good quality yoghurt, fresh cream or ice-cream.

In accordance with EU directive 1924/2006 we are unable to make any health claim about any of our honeys. The information given below is either background information about the plants from which our honey comes, or anecdotal based on customer reviews. It should not be inferred from the plant properties that this honey automatically possesses the same qualities or provides the same benefits as the plant.

Plants from the heliocarpus genus, to which the Moho tree belongs, have been used in traditional healing in Mexico for centuries.

A scientific study in UAM University, Mexico City, in 2008 concluded that there is indeed a basis for the use of the heliocarpus plant in helping to relieve headaches and disturbed sleep.

A 2001 scientific study at the University of Habana in Cuba found that the Majagua (Moho) tree has antioxidant properties that help to combat asthma.

The study found that several naturally occurring chemical compounds contained in the flower were found to inhibit the formation of substances that aggravate the airways of asthmatics.

This honey can be used like ordinary honey but is best taken as a teaspoon of this honey mixed into a glass of cool or warm (not hot) water and drunk three times a day on an empty stomach.

Raw Organic Pacific Moho Tree Honey from Mexico

I purchased the item as a gift so can't comment on the quality of the taste but was impressed by the way in which it was packaged and presented. The key thing that attracted me was the fact the honey is organic and ethically sourced.
As a first time customer, I wasn't sure what to expect but was reassured by the regular updates on the delivery as well as additional information on the quality of the product. I was also impressed by the excellent customer service when I raised a query and this was dealt with promptly and professionally. I will definitely consider ordering again and would recommend the Latin Honey Shop to others.
