    Default Why no Tupelo Honey this year?

    I was out on the web looking for Tupelo honey to make a straight mead or metheglin with and discovered that many places are not offering Tupelo this year. I am wondering why this is...

    There was a massive drought this year in most areas that have tupelo trees.

    IIRC, 2011 was 25% of normal, and 2012 was 15% of normal.

    If I Recall Correctly (IIRC)

    Basically, two really bad years in a row.

    Might try meadowfoam or sourwood, as a tasty alternative.
