Maple Tidbits

Here are some of our favorites:

  • National Maple Syrup Day is December 17th
  • Sap from the beginning of maple season is as clear as water
  • Each tap can yield about 10 gallons of sap per season, producing about one quart of syrup
  • Maple season can last for about 8 to 10 weeks giving us a limited time to produce the liquid gold goodness
  • Tapping only takes about 10% of a tree's total sap each season
  • Maple Syrup is only commercially produced in the northeast corner of North America
  • Syrup flavors and nutrients vary based on the soil a maple tree grows in, tree genetics, weather during the season, processing technique, and when sap is collected
  • There are different species of maple trees, Sugar Maples (Acer saccharum) are one of the maple trees with high sugar content
  • The sugar maple became the official state tree to the great state of New York in 1956
