Albaida honey comes from the flowers of the Albaida, the Anthyllis cytisoides in its scientific name, belonging to the Fabáceae family. A small bush that usually does not exceed one metre in height and grows along the Mediterranean coast.

The Albaida flowers in spring, although it can be shortened to lengthen depending on rainfall and temperature, and the flowering can be prolonged for several months. As a consequence, Albaida honey is early.
