Photographer's Note

Since long time ago, the Maltese Islands were famous in the ancient world, for the special blended and spicy honey and in fact the Greeks named the island as 'Melite' with the Romans renaming it to 'Melita'.

The marvellous honey characteristics are attributed to the vast range of wild flowers within the Maltese Islands. The honey is a blend of the seasonal flora, and not of just one particular crop, although the largest amount of pollen and nectar, generally influences the taste, like in the case of wild thyme, citrus and carob honey. About 1000 species of mostly wild flora flowers are identified in Malta like; Wild Thyme, White Clover, Bitumen Clover, White Mustard, and Borage. The carob, citrus and stone fruit trees also help to give the honey a more special taste.
