How do we get different types of Honey that taste & look different? 

The type of honey is determined by the type of flowers that were blooming near the bees.

Plants and trees closest to the bees will be the primary source for nectar witch is used by the bees to make the honey.

When you see a jar labeled “Carrot honey” or “wildflower honey,” it means the nectar source was the flower of the same name.

A bee can produce about one tablespoon of honey.
