Balparmak Bingöl

Approximately 1000 different varieties of wild flowers, 109 of which are endemic to Turkey, grow in the Bingöl Mountains that cut across Bingöl province. Of these plants, 2 are rare and endemic on a global scale, 33 on a European scale and 30 on the national scale. 7 species of astragalus, along with wild plum, are the most prominent of the region’s honey-producing plants. Bingöl honey is mostly compiled from honeys obtained from flowers that grow naturally on the province’s high plains.  The honey has a translucent appearance, a sharp and lingering taste, and the aroma of a multitude of unique flowers.
