"Warm and humid weather promotes the flowering of plants and the release of nectar, the bees only have to do their work," said Eglīte.
She pointed out that the quality of honey is also expected to be high, as determined by recent evaluation competitions. This year's honey should be classic, pleasant in both color and taste though of course, much depends upon the precise plants the bees have been visiting. Honey is not merely honey after all, in the same way that wine is not merely wine.
This year there is not as much 'dark' honey as there sometimes is in the middle of summer.
Eglīte said that honey prices will not change significantly this year. Prices for beekeepers change very slowly, and there are no large price fluctuations even in years when the harvest is poor.
