A Delicate Orchid

Papua New Guinean vanilla is an orchid that requires constant attention and delicacy in cultivation. It is a vine that relies on a lively tutor. It only blooms 3 years after planting, and it takes 8 months for the pod to mature before it can be harvested. Its preparation is very tedious, as it is entirely manual and requires a lot of rigor, patience, and love.

The Story of a Hidden Flower

Vanilla originates from Mexico, where the Aztecs incorporated it into their preparations to sweeten the bitterness of chocolate. The Totonac people, living along the coasts of the Gulf of Mexico, were the first to cultivate vanilla. For them, vanilla was called "caxixanath," meaning "hidden flower." The Totonacs retained the monopoly on vanilla cultivation until the 19th century, with European attempts to cultivate this orchid outside of its natural habitat proving unsuccessful.
