What could have caused this green honey? A few cases have already been recorded, but it remains a peculiar phenomenon.

Karen Pretorius asks:

My husband removed a swarm of bees from a roof. To our surprise, the honey was green. What can cause it?

Dave answers:

I have to boldly admit that I have never seen green honey in my entire life.

After a thorough search, I found that this phenomenon has been noticed elsewhere, and the sources of nectar indicated are kiwi blossoms, certain thistles, feedlots where bees feed and even sweets (M & Ms).

Do any of these sources occur near the home?
