A truly precious orchid that grows deep in the tropical forest
Vanilla comes from the Vanilla Planifolia orchid, which requires constant care and delicate attention. The white flower grows on the end of a creeper which uses trees as a stake, usually a mango tree or an avocado tree. It flowers for the first time 3 years after being planted; and then it takes another 8 months before the pod ripens for harvest.
How is Madagascar vanilla produced?
Vanilla requires meticulous and expert handling with lots of tender loving care. The vanilla plants are pollinated by hand. After the harvest, the pods are first scalded and sweated, then they are left out to dry in the sun for two weeks and flattened by hand. The next phase involves drying the pods in the shade for 8 months in crates to preserve their strong aromas. Last comes the grading, to determine the quality of each pod. At Terre Exotique, we only select “Gourmet” or “TK” quality pods depending on the production.
