About Willow Manna

The height of the Brittle willow tree (the tree Willow Manna is produced from) reaches twenty meters. The branches of this tree are slightly brittle and slightly hanging. The leaves of this tree are elongated and pointed, and their sides are saw-shaped. The back of its leaves is much paler and whiter than the top. The petioles are short. Brittle Willow flowers are a set of yellow-green and fluffy filaments that grow in a cylindrical shape.

There is a dark yellow seed on each of these threads. Its flowers are fragrant. The fruit of this tree is small, elongated, relatively narrow, and green, which grow in tall and straight clusters.

Willow Manna is a type of manna that is produced by the activity of an insect called Tuberolachnus salignus on the leaves and branches of the Brittle Willow tree. These aphids suck this plant’s sap with their proboscis and after a series of reactions occur on it in their digestive system, produced manna expels from the cornicles of the sixth abdominal segment. Willow Manna droplets, which have a diameter of 1 to 2 mm, turn into crystals after leaving the insect’s body in the vicinity of the air, and can be collected. This manna is similar to cane sugar and its color is milky white and it has a pleasant smell. Willow Manna is sweet and easily dissolves in water.
