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

12,000 years ago, Mexico was home to the first avocado trees known to man. Today, the region of Michoacan on the Pacific coast of western Mexico produces half of the world's avocado crop. Our Raw Pacific Avocado Honey is produced by bees that feed on the nectar from these avocado trees, which are situated 5000ft high on the mountain slopes of Michoacan.

The avocado tree grows 20m high with leaves 12-25cm long and small green-yellow flowers 5-10mm wide. It only grows in tropical or subtropical climates.

Tasting notes: Bold, rich, woody, smoky, burnt sugar and caramel notes that mellow into maple syrup and molasses with a subtle aftertaste of avocado

Texture: Buttery smooth black liquid that is silky on the tongue but dissolves quickly

Aroma: Strong, lactic as if fermenting, similar to cooked butter and warm chestnut

Sweetness: medium

Mixed in cold water, this honey makes a nutritious, refreshing and tasty drink. With thick Greek yoghurt, it makes a healthy snack or breakfast. And drizzled on top of premium vanilla ice cream, it makes a delicious dessert.

The avocado fruit contains an incredible amount (over 25) of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and some of the highest levels of health-promoting properties known to exist.

With a very high number of medically active compounds, the avocado fruit is said to offer many of the same medicinal properties as an aloe vera plant.

When used as a face mask avocado extracts can promote healthy, supple skin and help reduce wrinkles.

Avocado extracts can be used as a hair conditioner for dry, damaged hair and to promote shiny, vibrant hair.

Avocados contain carotenoid lutein in far higher concentrations than in any other fruit. Lutein is essential for protection against age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

Avocado extracts are also used:

- to neutralise bad breath
- as a natural treatment for dandruff
- to prevent growth of oral cancer cells
- to accelerate menstruation
- to combat viruses including herpes and HIV-1
- during pregnancy due to its exceptionally high vitamin, mineral and folic acid content
- to relieve symptoms of psoriasis
- to prevent acne

Scientific studies

A 2008 study at Ohio State University, USA, found that extracts from the avocado plant inhibited and destroyed human mouth cancer cells.

A study in Shizuoka University, Japan, in 2000, found that compounds naturally present in avocados reduce liver disease.

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.

I tried this out because I love avocado but wasn't impressed with the taste of this honey.

Dear Danny, Thank you for your review. Generally, the darker the honey, the stronger the flavour. Stronger honeys are best enjoyed mixed with something else: water or ice-cream or yoghurt for example, rather than neat from the spoon. The avocado honey in particular tastes delicious mixed with thick Greek yoghurt or drizzled on top of vanilla ice cream. It also makes a refreshing and tasty drink when mixed in cold water.
