Diversity of peninsular honeys

Mexico is a megadiverse country, this quality provides a large number of blooms and therefore also a great diversity of honey. A large part of the diversity of plant and animal species found in the country is concentrated in the Yucatan peninsula, therefore, the diversity of honey produced is also greater than in other parts of the country. Yucatan is considered the second state with the highest production. At DELIMAB we believe that the characterization and differentiation of honeys is an added value, since it is a great pleasure to know the different characteristics, origins and flavors, therefore within our products you will find 8 different types of honey.

Mangroves are made up of trees that grow in the salty water of the tidal zones, or in the salty soils, frequently inundated by salty water. Mangroves are very rich ecosystems because the few species they harbor cannot grow anywhere else in the world. They are ecologically important, offering accommodation to a large number of species of birds, fish and reptiles. They are also socially valuable, since in mangrove areas there are important fishing communities. Also because the mangroves protect the coasts from hurricanes. Four mangrove species predominate: Rhizophora mangrove (red mangrove), Laguncularia racemosa (white mangrove), Avicennia germinans (black mangrove, madresal) and Conocarpus erectus (buttonwood mangrove).

Melipona honey

Description: There are hundreds of species of Stingless bees native to Mexico and Mesoamerica, of which a particular group are stingless bees, which make up what in biology is called the Meliponini tribe. In this tribe are Melipona, Scaptotrigona and Tetragonisca, the main genera of native bees managed, Melipona beecheii being the best known. Many species belong. Some 10 species have been cultivated since pre-Hispanic times by different peoples of Mesoamerica, constituting a highly relevant biological and cultural heritage. Melipona is known for its management by the Mayans of Petén and the Yucatán Peninsula. The Mayans used their honey as food, to prepare drinks such as balché that was consumed during ceremonies and used as an offering to the gods. These bees are very important culturally but also and of course ecologically, as they are pollinators of many native plant species. In fact, they are specialized in visiting and pollinating trees and shrubs, with very little being observed foraging in herbs. Its harvest is a very careful ancestral and artcraft process, the bee colony produces 1-1.2 kilograms of honey over the course of a year.
