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: Sharp tangy taste of fresh mango and candied citrus peel
Texture: Part-set part-runny honey which crystallises quickly due to its high pollen content
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.

It’s a crystallized semi-fluid honey that to me is tangy-sweet and has a hint of mango in it. I ordered 5 as it was on sale. As far as raw organic honeys go, I like it and I really trust the latin honey shop.
I like it so much that I bought 20 jars in a single order when I heard it will no longer be available.
I am reviewing the Pacific Moho Tree Honey from Mexico.
Last time, I purchased the Gumbo honey and really enjoyed that one.
However, in my opinion, this one is even better.
It is runny, so perfect for spooning out and feeding to my child when he is ill...and perfect for me to make a honey drink.
In taste, it is tangy and quite tropical. There is no other way to describe it. It is 100% genuine from what I can tell as I have tasted honey removed from hives right before my eyes and this one has that distinctive fresh from the hive taste that supermarket honeys simply do not have.
But strangely, it has a taste of mangoes to it, which I really enjoy.
Fantastic honey. I will purchase the coffee bean one when we run out of this one. Sadly this one is out of stock, otherwise I'd be buying this too.
