It may contain flower honey, mainly spring heather (the bees have grown in it before their transfer to the firs), as well as raspberries, wild strawberry, honeysuckle, wild oregano, etc., due to the rich beekeeping flora of the area, as well as chestnut, the whose honeycomb coincides with the end of the fir.
