Monkey Pod flower looks like pink powder puffs. Flowering usually starts at the end of the dry season, when leaves and any previous seed pods drop. New foliage appears and flowering begins at the same time. Flowering tends to peak in the spring, although a tree may have flowers in almost any month.
How does it taste? Not unlike maple syrup. This is a deep amber honey with a carmel-esque taste. Somewhat similar to our Mango and Melochia blossom but with much stronger maple undertones.
