Vanilla is a flavoring recovered from the cured beans of the orchid genus Vanilla. Vanilla tahitensis is traditionally cultivated on the islands of French Polynesia, where vanilla vines were first introduced during the nineteenth century and, since the 1960s, have been introduced to other Pacific countries such as Papua New Guinea (PNG), cultivated and sold as Tahitian vanilla although both sensory properties and aspect are different.
