Buckwheat plants grow best in cool, moist climates. The buckwheat plant prefers light and well-drained soils, although it can thrive in highly acid, low fertility soils as well. Buckwheat is usually planted in the spring or is found growing wild. It blooms quite early and it yields a dark brown honey of strong, distinct flavor.
This thick and very dark honey has a rich, molasses taste that is not overly sweet. The aroma is pleasant and earthy.
PEDIATRICIAN WARNING: Do not feed honey to children under 1 year old.
