Each tube contains 1 bean.
These rare vanilla beans from the sate of Oaxaca are very different from other vanillas found throughout Mexico. Harvested from plants that grow to 1.300 meters in altitude, before succumbing to a transformation that lasts for many weeks. The pollination of the flowers occurs naturally and without any human intervention, which is very rare in the vanilla growing culture.
Before the arrival of Europeans in the Americas, vanilla was found exclusively in Mexico and Central America, and by then the Totonaque people had already mastered the transformation process. It is still the only place in the world where insects pollinate vanilla, naturally. Today, good quality Mexican vanilla is not easy to find. Its fragrance remains incomparable.
