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 southeastern 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.
