INDIAN VANILLA PODS

Until 2000 vanilla was hardly grown in India. It's now well established. India exported some 200 metric tonnes of vanilla to the US in 2009 and 2010. India is now recognised globally as one of the major vanilla producing nations alongside Madagascar, Uganda, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. In recent years the harvest in India has reduced somewhat primarily due to the fact that the price of vanilla has remained low for several years.

Our superb bourbon vanilla was originally grown in the lush green hills of south India, in Karnataka, Tamal Nadu and Kerala. Vanilla is welcomed here as a crop alongside coffee, tea, cocoa and other spices like pepper and cardamom.
