Genuine vanilla comes from Vanilla orchids (Vanilla Planifolia being the most commonly grown species). These orchids are vines, and need to cling on to something (such as a tree or a pole) in order to grow. The fruit of the orchids is mostly referred to as “vanilla beans”, and it is from these we receive pure vanilla.
