Red Gum also known as Marri, Eucalyptus calophylla, though not as high with antioxidants as Jarrah, has levels of activity similar to Manuka honey.
Both Red Gum and Jarrah honeys have a significant proportion of their antioxidant activity attributable to components other than phenolics and this is worthy of further research.
Red Gum occurs in the Jarrah and Karri forest on light sandy soils and on the coastal plain. It flowers from February to March. Red Gum pollen is highly nutritious.
Bees are collecting nectar to make Red Gum Honey.
