Yes, that's certainly what happened here. Manuka used to be seen as rubbish, other than for smoking fish.

I think most strong dark honeys have good health properties.

Manuka may have the field to its self as a skin care dressing but not as an ingested health product .

And ingested health product is where all the money is .

While we are on the subject, this is Wedderspoons offering to the world.

 

An American company, set up a branch over here to produce manuka and sell to America. Company is American owned, employs foreign labour, and appears to have few ethics about poaching turf.

In the advert it states "Genuine: KFactor is a New Zealand government-approved rating system guaranteeing high Manuka pollen count"

I have never heard of KFactor - is that legitimate???

"K factor" sounds better than "M factor".

God bless America

Maybe they will make a better job of the Business then we did

200mm is a good screen if you want to filter out lids, bases and most frames B|

Does anyone know, is it possible to distinguish between Manuka and Kanuka pollen?? I thought it was not possible.

I believe they can. But it is difficult. @Linda Newstrom-Lloyd Has, if I remember correctly, some slides of pollen samples and at a field day/conference pointed out the differences.
