Vanilla is derived from the only fruit bearing orchid, native to Mexico.
Like fine wine, each growing region gives the vanilla unique and complex flavour characteristics. We have chosen a Planifolia variety, certified organic, and specially selected for its rich, bold, creamy & deeply complex flavour with fruity notes and hints of caramel & chocolate. A unique, highly fragrant vanilla that works well in classic kiwi baking.
