John is not an online guy. The next time I speak to him I will ask him.
Actually there maybe someone on this list that will speak to him or see him

My guess would be that the sugar in the honey stimulates more rapid growth
in the stamens. This would be useful to the breeder if he had a stigma that
was going to become receptive before the pollen would otherwise be
available.
