Manuka honey is unique to New Zealand and comes from the nectar of manuka (Leptospermum scoparium).

For hundreds of years, Maori have used parts of the manuka tree for traditional medicine. However, Maori could not produce manuka honey because New Zealand's native

solitary bees do not produce comb honey. The honey bee was introduced to New Zealand in 183916 by English settlers, and Mary Bumby was the first bee-keeper here. Therefore, manuka honey has only been in existence for the last 180 years.
