(Vanilla planifolia)

Vanilla beans (pods) are the dried unripe fruits the Vanilla orchid (Vanilla planifolia). Vanilla absolute is extracted from the beans of the plant. These plants can be found growing in Madagascar and Indonesia.

Every flower is pollinated by hand and each blossom produces a single bean that is normally harvested after 8/9 months. Vanilla absolute is obtained from the pods by a complex process.

Vanilla pods and vanillin extracted from them are widely used as flavourings in cakes, ice creams and custards.
