This year I harvested some very dark honey, I live in south west Florida and was wondering if anyone has an idea of what kind of honey it is.

I don't know your crops, but my fall honey which is mainly ragweed and goldenrod looks a lot like that. What does it taste like?

I'm in Maine and we harvest a very dark honey in the fall that is from American Bamboo The nectar flow for the bamboo was late August through early October.. I have a friend that had grown buckwheat and it was harvested in the summer, with the spring nectar flow. Both look very similar, but I believe the buckwheat honey when held up to the light had dark brown hues. The Bamboo honey had very dark red hues when held up to light (like Guiness).
