Lodgepole Pine Pollen VS Ponderosa Pine Pollen?
Canadian Pine Pollen comes from one of two types of pine trees, Lodgepole (yellow cones) or Ponderosa (red cones). Nutritionally the two are similar, short of identical. The difference is that ponderosa pollen grains are larger in size (about 10 microns), as are the pollen buds and the trees. Lodgepole, in comparison, comes from higher altitude terrains and thus more tasking on the hands to harvest.
