Chilean Bee Boxes

In the world of sweeteners, one of the more unusual flavours comes from Chilean ulmo (OOL-moe) honey. Here there are forests with a range of species, as many as 200 species of plant in a single acre. That includes trees that offer flowers for honey. Each box produces 35 to 40 kilograms of honey per harvest. Since ulmo can’t be grown in plantations, the few beekeepers around the countryside provide the entire world’s supply of ulmo honey.
