Running parallel to the western coast of India’s peninsula, the Western Ghats is an area with one of the richest biological diversity. This chain of hills runs for about 1,600 kilometers in length and rises to a maximum height of 2,800 meters. Considered one of the global hotspots for biodiversity, this landscape harbors abundant microbes, plants and animals. From a rich assemblage of large mammals to the mysterious bioluminescent fungus, the Western Ghats are a delight for nature explorers. Many fascinating species such as the Nigiri tahr and Lion-tailed macaques are endemic to this region. I born and brought in coastal regions of Mangalore, proximity to Western Ghat, always fascinated by the richest biological diversity of the Western Ghat and want to contribute to preserve these endemic and endangered plants, trees. I have plans to do that in my own property near Mangalore. I will provide more details about it in future blogs.
Neelakurinji flowers that blooms once in 12 years
I had heard about a particular plant growing in the Western ghats, mostly in the area around Munnar, called the Neelakurinji, that blooms only once every 12 years or so. Recent bloom of Neelakurinji was in 2018. The next predicted bloom will be in 2030, and I am eagerly waiting to see it, dreaming of an elusive, hard-to-find plant in uncultivated forests. These are Small flowers, a pinkish-purple color with a white tinge.
Neelakurinji Honey: A Taste of the Western Ghats
The Neelakurinji flower blooms once every 12 years. Allison Stewart visits a beekeeper’s farm in Coorg when the Neelakurinji is in bloom, to harvest honey that captures the unique flavors of the Western Ghats. Because honey is made from the nectar of plants near the beehive, honey can describe the local landscape; representing terroir much in the same way that wine represents the flavors of its region. It literally is the taste of the local vegetation and the specific season — the plants at that particular time of the year, encapsulated in a drop of of sweet syrup. More than anything, it is important to buy single varietal honeys that are raw. Most of the the honeys available in the commercial market are combined, heated, and filtered to create a streamlined product that is mild in taste, far from the intense flavors of raw single varietal honeys that embody terroir. Some honey experts have even created a tasting wheel for tasting notes of varying honey varietals. I’ve tasted dozens of honeys in Madikeri; some are salty and crisp, some are mellow and creamy, some are dark colored and resemble molasses. The taste of the Neelakurinji honey, more than anything, tastes like pineapples with distinct notes of lavender.
