The famous Huahine vanilla is considered as one of the best vanilla in Polynesia, with very balanced aromas and fragrances. Cultivated for at least 150 years and harvested at full maturity, like its sisters, it is distinguished by perfectly controlled refining. Cooked, its fatty acids release their powerful aromas which enhance your dishes and desserts with notes of caramel, prune, ripe fruit and anise which are specific to Huahine vanilla. As one of the most gourmet vanilla, its pods are fleshy, thick and oily pods with a glossy dark brown colour. Their size vary between 14 to 20 cm and average weight is about 7g.
