In its place of origin, North America, acacia trees (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) grows sparsely on slopes covered with boulder stones, suppressed by other plants. In the seventeenth century, acacia trees were introduced to Hungary, where the hard wood was desired for construction, agricultural tools, wagons, wine barrels, etc. The trees flourished in Hungary due to its climate and soil conditions. Over the centuries, Hungary became covered with pure Acacia forests, which now make up more than one-fifth of all forests in Hungary. Acacia trees can be found in isolated areas throughout Europe, but forests of acacia trees are unique to Hungary.

The acacia trees blossom early in the Spring. For only four or five weeks, the acacia tree is a solid white sight to behold. Beekeepers move their hives from one forest to another, typically from the north to the south, as each year's particular weather patterns determine the ideal honey yield. Deep within the acacia forests, hives are typically distant from agricultural areas and orchards where chemicals or fertilizers could affect the honey produced.

Acacia honey has a harmonic taste and the aroma of acacia blossoms. The pollen from acacia flowers is amazingly sweet and delicate. Its uniqueness can be truly revealed only by evidence of the senses. The white flowers create the lightest and clearest color of all honey varietals. Its color ranges from nearly colorless to light amber.

In fact, the lighter the color, the higher the acacia pollen content and the higher the purity of the product. It is a mild, not very acidic honey. Due to its high fructose content, it remains liquid for a long time.It has antiseptic and natural medicinal properties.

It is recommended to ease coughing and also for indigestion caused by hyperacidity. Its mild flavor makes it a popular sweetener used in drinks and desserts, for it does not mask the original food flavor . In addition to the very favorable climate, the continuous acacia forests, a very productive bee variety, a special apiarian technology and some other beneficial effects of the non-living environment create those distinctive features that ensure the quality of Hungarian acacia honey.
