Based on the specific Bee Species, there are 3 broad varieties of honey gathered………………….
- Dhodda Jenu (Badaga) / Malai Thaen (Tamil) – Means big bee honey
- Kunna Jenu (Badaga) / Adukku Thaen (Tamil) – Means small bee honey
- Kol Jenu (Badaga) /Kombu Thaen (Tamil) – Means stick/branch bee honey.
These types also have various flavours depending on the specific flower type the bee has gathered its nectar (An individual hive will have honey from only a specific wild flower). This will be identified, gathered and segregated only during the harvest.
