Ongahi map Ongahi, Coromandel Peninsula

Ongahi on the Coromandel Peninsula of the North Island is a rustic, relaxed and unspoiled area of New Zealand and is renowned for its brilliant beaches and rugged coastline. The native Pohutukawa trees cling to the rugged coastline and make a magnificent sight over the hot summer months when the trees are covered in spectacular bright crimson red flowers.

Coromandel Pohutukawa Honey is a pale golden colour. It is well-balanced, lightly floral and sweeter than your average Pohutukawa honey. A honey of outstanding quality, the flavour is clean, earthy and resembles sweet butterscotch.

A good all round culinary honey adding honey sweetness without overpowering food. It is perfect for melting into sauces. On a cheeseboard pair with nutty cheeses such as Emmental, Gruyere or mild Havarti or a hard sheep's cheese such as pecorino.

Pohutukawa tree Metsiderosis excels

The Pohutukawa is one of New Zealand's spectacular native trees which cling to the coastline of New Zealand. During summer the trees are covered in masses of brilliant crimson flowers, and are often referred to as New Zealand's Christmas tree.

The flowering of the Pohutukawa is very erratic, making Pohutukawa honey very challenging to collect and therefore a rare treat.
