Vanilla, a True Slow Food Vanilla beans are one of the world's most labor-intensive crops. The beans are the fruit of a climbing orchid (vanilla planifolia) that is indigenous to Mexico and Central America. The three-year growth period from planting to maturity is just the beginning of the long journey toward becoming bean, extract or powder. Every single vanilla planifolia flower is pollinated by hand after which growth continues for nine more months until the green seedpod (the vanilla bean) develops. Farmers closely monitor individual plants into the next year. They hand-harvest daily since each bean ripens at its own pace and extreme care must be taken to ensure they do not become over-mature and split. Finally, a crucial six-month curing process gives the beans their heavenly perfume and flavor.
