Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar is a world-famous vanilla variety , known for its rich taste with a chocolatey touch as well as its captivating fragrance .

Vanilla planifolia  is the variety of vanilla that grows in Madagascar and has an AOC Bourbon , a label for vanillas from the Indian Ocean that will grow only in Madagascar, Reunion Island, Comoros, Mauritius , Mayotte and Seychelles . Planifolia vanilla is the second vanilla in the world after Bahian vanilla which will have the highest level of vanillin , this is the aromatic power of vanilla. In addition, Reunion Island is currently an integral part of French territory. The history of this island is closely linked to the Bourbon dynasty, which ruled France from 1589 to 1789, then from 1815 to 1848. In 1642, the French took possession of the island in the name of King Louis XIII and he gave the name "Bourbon Island". This is how the planifolia vanilla variety grown in the Indian Ocean was called "Bourbon vanilla", in reference to its place of origin . This geographical designation gives it a unique identity and contributes to its international reputation . Did you know that its origin is from Mexico, but here, it is the story of vanilla and come and discover it on our blog. Did you know that Brazil has more than 40 species of native vanilla?

Vanilla is a climbing vine from the orchid family, native to Mexico.

The orchid does not require much attention, but during its pollination, yes. Check out vanilla cuttings in water . 

It first crossed the Atlantic Ocean to arrive in Europe then the Indian Ocean in the 19th century to reach Madagascar, which quickly became the world's leading producer.

You should know that the majority of vanilla plants come from Asia, according to writings; 

In Central America, the Melipone bee was responsible for pollinating flowers. But Edmond Albius discovered that hand pollination of the flower was possible, which made it possible to extend vanilla production to regions where the Melipone bee was not present.

We must give back to Caesar what is Caesar's, it was a Belgian, a botanist from Liège who was the first to discover the pollination of vanilla. 

This essential procedure must be done daily on open flowers, because you have less than 12 hours to fertilize its princesses. 

After nine months, the pods develop and resemble giant beans. You should know that it is in the last two weeks that the vanilla plant will give vanillin, that is to say the aroma of vanilla. 

The vanilla is harvested by hand when they reach maturity, and a long process begins to transform these odorless green fruits into a deliciously aromatic and flavorful spice. The preparation is done in 8 steps:

  1. scalding 
  2. steaming
  3. sun drying 
  4. Drying in the shade
  5. Refining 
  6. Calibration
  7. Export
  8. Packaging in France

Did  you know  that tahitensis vanilla does not open at full maturity and Madagascar vanilla and planifolia variety does. 

The production and processing of vanilla requires patience and incredible know-how, to have a Prestige vanilla.

This spice is the most difficult to produce, a bit like red pepper .

It is good to know that the aroma of vanilla will come from the vanillin, it is during the last week or even the last two if the harvest is well done, that the vanilla will take on its characteristic flavor. The foot gives it a feminine scent.
