German term or phrase: Frühjahrstacht
suche Englisches Äquivalent zu dem Wort „Frühjahrstacht“

Als Imker kann ich meinen Honig „Rapshonig, Waldhonig, Lindenblütenhonig etc. nur als solchen bezeichnen, wenn ich diesen auch die entsprechende Prüfung –die Geld kostet- unterzogen habe. Dennoch habe ich als Imker die Möglichkeit meinen Honig unter der Bezeichnung „Frühjahrstacht“ bzw. „Sommerblüte“ ohne Ärger mit den Behörden auf den Markt zu bringen.
Die Frühjahrstracht bezieht sich auf die Tracht-Imkerei- „Die Tracht ist das gesamte Angebot an Nektar, Pollen und Honigtau, den die Honigbienen in den heimischen Bienenstock eintragen. Dort wird er zu Honig umgearbeitet. Der nicht von den Bienen selbst verbrauchte Honig kann durch die Imkerei geerntet werden. –
Ich suche nach einer Überzeugenden Übersetzung des Wortes „Frühjahrstacht“.
Es muss und sollte sowohl als auch im BE so wie im AE ein Wort / Begriff dafür geben, da es dort auch Imker gibt, die nicht unbedingt nur Sortenhonig verkaufen.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks for your exceptional answer. However, do English / American beekeepers, label their honey that they harvest in the spring, and cannot or will not determine the “sort/kind” of honey as “Spring Nectar Flow Honey”? Flow means liquid, and my honey is definitely not flowing. It is liquid and flowing during harvest, but hardens after stirring it a few times. I am seeking a one word equivalent of “Frühjahrstracht”-for my labels on the jars. With the term “Frühjahrstracht” I am within the law. If I want to call my Honey xyz honey, I will have to have it checked for a fee. Translating it into “Spring Nectar”-seems to be the most obvious, yet Nectar is Nectar, and Tracht-as in the whole of what nature gives is more than Nectar. Nectar is only part of the whole picture/product of the spring harvest.
