THE BACKSTORY

Vanilla orchids have their origins in a range running from Mexico to the Northern part of South America. Locked there for years, exporting vanilla was futile, for many years, because the flowers only bloom in the morning, once a year.  The only known way of pollinating them was a small, stingerless insect called the Melipona bee. A twelve-year old slave living on the French island of Réunion discovered that the plant could be hand-pollinated. Perhaps should be called Réunion vanilla.

Of the two other sub-species of vanilla, the planifolia, found in tropical areas of the Indian Ocean, including Madagascar and Réunion.is,  Today, it is the most common vanilla is produced today.
