CGS - Continental Gold Star (Italian Queen Bee - Ligustica)
Italian Queen Bees selected in north of Italy crossed with Continental Buckfast. In spring it develops very quickly forming strong and populous colonies and is perfect for early flowerings such as rapeseed, pollination, production of new colonies or packaged bees. Productive with strong nectariferous flows (like Acacia) can also take advantage of small blooms. It bears good hot summers and cold winters well.
