The harvest of the vanilla of Kerala

If we talk about vanilla cultivation, we should perhaps rather talk about an art. Growing vanilla requires a lot of patience and a real knowledge of this very specific product. Why patience? Because it is necessary to wait 3 years after planting for the vanilla tree to produce its first flowers. Then, it is necessary to pollinate them manually, a real precision work. Several months are then necessary for the vanilla flower to give way to beautiful pods ripe enough to be picked.

Then come different stages to obtain a very beautiful vanilla from Kerala:
- scalding
- steaming
- drying
- refining

The refining is a crucial step that consists in leaving the Kerala vanilla beans in a trunk and sorting them to remove those that are moldy and could damage the quality of the other beans.
