Rapeseed honey is whitish, sometimes yellowish, with a pleasant aroma, luscious, very thick, rapidly crystallizes, poorly soluble in water, but with prolonged storage it quickly becomes sour. Bees make such honey from the nectar of yellow flowers of a wonderful essential oil plant – rape. According to observations, in the southwest of Ukraine, one bee family brought about 8 kg of rapeseed honey per day. From a hectare of flowering rape, bees collect 50 kg of honey.
