Planifolia vanilla pods from Madagascar - 250g
Sold in tub of 250 grams.
Vanilla is the fruit of the orchid, a plant which grows in shady tropical zones where the soil is well-drained.
During its growth, the vanilla pod has to be very carefully artificially fertilized by hand. The pods take about nine months to mature before undergoing various procedures including alternate drying periods in sunshine and shade.
The pods which should have a dark brown, oily aspect are then sorted and graded. It is due to the long process of planting, growing, drying and sorting vanilla- mostly by hand- that its price makes it one of the most expensive spices in the world.
