I have also seen manuka turn up in  apiarys when they have produced nothing but clover for 20 years and were a huge distance from any manuka plants.

Are you sure it was manuka. only MPI scientists know what manuka is.

Side note, if you're sending in thixotropic honey for lab testing, the best thing you can do is put it in a wide-mouth container to make it easy to sample.

 

Alternately if you're a bit annoyed with us, put it in a narrow glass bottle and we'll never be able to get it out 🙃
