Description

The Tahitian vanilla beans have a floral taste and fragrance, different from the Madagascar Bourbon species. The bean pod is also stouter (plumper) than the Madagascar Bourbon species, and have higher oil and seed content.

Vanilla tahitiensis otherwise known as Tahitian Vanilla is cultivated mostly along the arable lands of the south pacific especially French Polynesia-Tahiti, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. The Tahitian Vanilla, unlike the Madagascar Bourbon species (Vanilla planifolia) is rare; it’s only a small fraction of the world’s natural vanilla production and deservedly nicknamed “the Queen of Vanilla” (1, 2). It has a floral taste and fragrance, different from the Madagascar Bourbon species. The bean pod is also stouter (plumper) than the Madagascar Bourbon species, and have higher oil and moisture content (1). The high cost of vanilla bean is driven mostly by the careful and tedious process of pollination, harvesting and curing of the pod.
