Piñón honey comes from piñón cubano (Gliricidia septum), a medium-sized tree from the legume family. Piñón is native to a large area spanning from southern Mexico to Venezuela. It is widely recognized for its soil-enriching capabilities, as well as its ability to feed cattle, bids and rabbits. Its wood is strong and resistant to termites and the elements. Because of that, piñón is also used as living fence. Moreover, its cork is used as poison for mice and its leaves are infused in water to treat the pox. Piñón blooms in lila/pink flowers, attracting bees from approximately January through May. Piñón honey is perhaps the most consistent, lower-moisture honey produced in the north coast of the Dominican Republic.
