It’s time for the Eighth annual Hawaiian Honey Challenge, hosted by the Big Island Beekepers Association.
The challenge was created to recognize the unique and varied flavors of Hawaiian honey, made possible by the rich tropical flower sources available to the bees.
Beekeepers can earn awards from a professionally judged honey competition. And the public may taste and rate their favorites at the People’s Choice event in Hilo.
Entries must be received by Oct. 6 and the formal judging will take place on Oct. 19.
