Abstract

Thirty Calluna vulgaris L. (Hull) honeys have been analysed, 9 of which were rejected (30%) as heather honeys following the methods of the International Commission for Bee Botany. The study demonstrated the Galluna pollen percentage composition (10-30%), the identified pollen taxa, details of the pollen spectra of all the accepted honeys, and the honeydew indicators. A total of 90 taxa have been defined with an average of 33 per honey. The samples belong to groups III and IV of Maurizio (1973).

Keywords
