The diversity of the Ticino pre-alpine territory is also echoed in the characteristics of the various kinds of honey. The ultimate Ticino honey is chestnut-honey; the flavour is very distinctive and fullbodied, but secondary flowering species may give it different tones and tastes.
Black locust or acacia honey, mostly gathered in the Sottoceneri region, is virtually colourless, with a fine, delicate fragrance and taste. Lime-honey is light brown and is generally appreciated by those who find black locust honey too sweet and the chestnut variety too strong.
