Yellow Box Honey
Yellow Box Honey comes from the Yellow Box Eucalyptus which has creamy pale yellow blossoms and a yellow inner bark. The Latin name, Eucalyptus Melliodora is apt; Melliodora is translated as “odor of honey” referring to the sweet honey aroma of the blossoms. The Yellow Box is a common species in the grassy woodlands of the tablelands and western slopes of the Great Dividing Range, extending from northern Victoria, through New South Wales into south-eastern Queensland. This species is usually 15–30 m tall and mainly grows on gentle slopes, foothills or on flats near watercourses. It blossoms from October through January.
