This vanilla is the result of a cross between Vanilla planifolia and Vanilla odorata, a rare wild species found in the forests of Belize, Brazil and Guatemala. On our blog, we have written articles about the 40 varieties of vanilla in the world in everything you need to know about vanilla . 

Tahitensis vanilla is particularly appreciated by great chefs for its unique aromatic profile and its ability to enrich recipes with an exceptional depth of taste.

Unlike other varieties, the Tahitensis variety is indehiscent, meaning its pods do not open when ripe, thus remaining fleshy and allowing growers to harvest them at their aromatic peak. 

You should know that it is during the last two weeks that the vanilla plant will give the aromatic power of vanilla, it is vanillin. Today Brazil is working to combine this variety with Bahian for a rare vanilla which would have a vanillin level of more than 6% and which will not split, therefore an improvement for the profitability of the plantation unlike the vanilla pod. from Madagascar which has a vanillin level between 1.6 and 1.8 and that is very good.

The process of preparing this vanilla is an art in itself, involving several months of maturation and exposure to the sun to fully develop its scent.

For the tahitensis variety from Papua, the vanilla tahitensis plants will take 5 years to become adults and especially the vanilla will go through scalding.

Tahitian vanilla, often nicknamed "The Black Gold of the Pacific", is a variety highly prized by renowned chefs because of its intense fragrance and its rarity. Here is his fascinating story:

    • Origins: Tahitian vanilla belongs to the vast orchid family, bearing the scientific name Vanilla x Tahitensis. Its history goes back a long way: from the time of the Aztecs in Mexico, vanilla was recognized for its power to flavor cocoa. In 1841, a young slave from the island of Bourbon (today Réunion) named Edmond discovered the process of artificial fertilization of vanilla pods. Later, in 1848, Admiral F. Hamelin brought vanilla plants from the Philippines to Tahiti.
    • Particularities: What makes Tahitian vanilla unique is its incomparable scent, thanks to a remarkable feature: unlike other varieties, it does not split when it reaches full maturity, thus preserving all the richness of its aromas. Unlike other vanillas, it continues to grow on the vine until harvest.
    • Production: Over the decades, Tahitian vanilla production has seen a notable decline. If in 1949, Tahiti produced around 300 tonnes of vanilla, this production dropped to only 132 tonnes in 1967. Today, Tahitian vanilla remains a luxury product, representing barely 0.3% of world production.


Tahitian vanilla is a precious ingredient, and its conservation is essential to preserve its fantastic aromas. Here's how to store your vanilla pods in the best conditions:  

  1. Dry place  : Fresh vanilla pods should be stored dry to avoid the development of mold. Make sure they are not exposed to moisture.

  2. Away from light and heat  : Light and heat cause vanilla to dry out, resulting in a loss of flavors. Store your pods in a cupboard, away from windows and heat sources.

  3. Avoid air  : Air can also dry out vanilla. Do not place it too close to other odorous ingredients, as it may become contaminated.

  4. Choose the right container  :

    • Glass or metal jar  : Opt for an airtight glass or metal container. Avoid making it too large to limit exposure to air.
    • Waxed paper  : Wrap the pods in waxed paper to prevent contact with air.
  5. Ideal temperature  : Store vanilla between  15 and 20°C.
