Why Mexican vanilla?
· Mexico is the original source of vanilla, where the environment, climate, soil and temperature are the perfect features for a perfect final product. All of these characteristics give Mexican vanilla the advantage that places it by far above others, in terms of fragrance, aromatic power and most of all its flavor.
· Mexican vanilla has more vanillin, and that translates into more flavor, more fragrance, and thus more yield.
· The geographic location where it is produced, gives the best features of them all. Few locations in Mexico have these properties. It can only be produced in Veracruz, north of Puebla, and now also in Yucatán, where we are successfully growing vanilla.

From the land where special things are born
The regions in the country where vanilla planifolia is found as an endemic species, give it very special characteristics. Oligolectic bees* have naturally pollinated the flowers of the vanilla orchids for centuries. Few locations in Mexico have vanilla with these endemic origins, in what is now the northern part of the state of Veracruz and neighbouring areas of the state of Puebla.
For commercial production however, artificial pollination is needed and widely found in Veracruz, Puebla, and also in our plantation in Yucatán.
Located on the same latitude, East of Veracruz, just across the Gulf of Mexico, the plantation has the proper conditions and similar weather patterns required to successfully grow vanilla planifolia.
