Just a note from my farm in Tennessee. I am just starting in bees this year and found your site very interesting and helpful!
I was surprised to see it say that poplar honey is not for food. That is one of my favorite honeys! It is strong and rich. One of my other favorites I got in Alaska is fireweed honey. Its totally different and wonderful too! Thank you so very much for taking the time to build this website!

Thank you Karen for writing in, and I am pleased that you have found the site useful.

With regards to the Tulip tree honey being unfit for humans, I was not referring to the honey that is harvested correctly. It is lovely honey! Don't get me wrong. What I was trying to say was that often the comb is so full of nectar that it can't be harvested, because if it was, the high water content would end up fermenting the honey.

Good luck with your beekeeping!
