The honeybees highly appreciate the Rapeseed plant, they gather from it significant quantities of pollen and nectar. Rape honey is collected in May, it is one of the first honey harvests of the year.
Rape honey crystallises quickly, it can crystallise even inside the comb and cannot be extracted anymore, it is also called by beekeepers “cement honey”.
Good to know: It is very likely if you order Raw honey from us, it will arrive set (crystallised) or soft-set state. Raw honey could crystallise very fast, this is a natural process because we do not heat-treating our honey. If you prefer your raw honey soft or runny, we would recommend putting the jar on the warm radiator for a few hours, and it will return to runny or will soften up. Alternatively, you could just place the jar in a bowl of hot water, and repeat until desired consistency is achieved.
