South Georgia gallberry
A small native Holly, Gallberry also refered to as white holly (Illex Glabra) grows in many Southern states, but no other place in the world does it grow in the density and abundance that it does in southeastern Georgia. This is a byproduct of the timber industry and the hundreds of thousands of acres of managed Slash Pine forests in which Gallberry is practically the only flowering plant to grow. Gallberry was the preferred honey of the south until falling out of fashion due to cheaper honeys from all over the world started to flow in. This beautiful light honey has a strong floral and spice fragrance and taste followed by a medium sweetness that finishes clean with no bitterness left on the pallet and is a favorite on biscuits here in south Georgia.
