Δε φτάνει ο ήλιος μονάχα, η γη σοδειά να δώσει, χρειάζονται κι άλλα πολλά, και προπαντός η γνώση… (Κωστής Παλαμάς)

Έλληνες, ο πραγματικός Έλληνας ηγέτης θα βρεθεί. Το πιο σημαντικό αυτή τη στιγμή είναι να βρεθεί ο πραγματικός Έλληνας ΠΟΛΙΤΗΣ!"

"Προδότης δεν είναι μόνο αυτός που φανερώνει τα μυστικά της πατρίδος στους εχθρούς, αλλά είναι και εκείνος που ενώ κατέχει δημόσιο αξίωμα, εν γνώση του δεν προβαίνει στις απαραίτητες ενέργειες για να βελτιώσει το βιοτικό επίπεδο των ανθρώπων πάνω στους οποίους άρχει..." - Θουκυδίδης (460-398 π.Χ.)

Λένε ότι οι πραγματικοί φίλοι μπορεί να περάσουν μεγάλα χρονικά διαστήματα χωρίς να μιλήσουν ή να ειδωθούν, χωρίς ποτέ να τεθεί σε αμφιβολία η φιλία τους. Όταν βλέπονται, ενημερώνονται σαν να είχαν μιλήσει την προηγούμενη ημέρα, χωρίς να λαμβάνεται υπόψη ο χρόνος που πέρασε ή πόσο μακρυά ήταν!

το φυτό TAWARI


TAWARI


Tawari has beautiful, perfectly formed flowers
Tawari (Ixerba brexioides) is an endemic New Zealand tree (found nowhere else in the World). "Tawari" is a Maori name where an "a" is pronounced like the "a" in "art". The tree grows up to around 15 metres (50 feet) in height and when flowering is a beautiful sight with perfectly formed flowers in very symetrical bunches contrasting against a dark green backdrop of similarly arranged leaves. The flowers were highly prized by the Maori people who used them for necklaces and adornment during festive occassions. The honey is a light colour with a beautiful taste reminiscent of butterscotch.

FLOWERING

Tawari flowers from October to the end of December but this varies according to location and altitude - usually the more South the latitude and the higher the altitude, the later the flowering.

The nectar is copious and very watery producing a prolific honey crop under ideal conditions - but often with a high final moisture content

Tawari is a predominantly bird pollinated flower with the flower size and structure arranged to deposit pollen from the widely spread anthers on a bird collecting nectar from the centrally located nectaries. Consequently the honey is usually under represented in pollen. Levels as low as 20% Tawari pollen may indicate a good quality Tawari honey (but under ideal conditions we have recorded levels as high as 71%) and levels of more than 30% are routinely achievable. Total pollen levels are also correspondingly low with an average from our database of 57,000 pollen grains per 10 grams of honey.

Tawari is a light coloured honey with an average of 23 mm (Pfund Scale). Other honey floral sources flowering alongside Tawari include Manuka and Rewarewa - both of which are substantially darker (84mm and 93mm respectivley) and can have a marked impact on the colour of Tawari honey.

The structure of the flower is laid out in 5s. i.e. five petals, 5 anthers, 5 nectaries, even the pollen grains have have a 5 sided shape.

Sugar Profile

Tawari is a higher fructose honey. We have few sugar analyses for Tawari at present but from initial data, Glucose is around 30%, Fructose 43% and Sucrose < href="http://www.airborne.co.nz/manufacturing.html#Crystallisation">slow crystallizing honey but in fact Tawari has a more pronounced tendency to crystallize than indicated by the ratios. Just another example that the immense variability of honey often produces results that are not always immediately explainable.
