Company Introduction

Cv. Silver king
Supplying the world with the very best in fresh produce vanilla beans/pods.

Vanilla beans it takes huge effort and time to cure the vanilla beans. This is why vanilla, along with saffron & cardamon are some of the most expensive spices in the world. The vanilla trees need delicate care and these vanilla flowers need to be carefully hand pollinated. After hand pollination, the flowers develop into long thin green beans/pods that can grow up to average length of about 8 inches long. These tasteless and odorless green pods are hand picked when they are still unripe and then they go through a fermentation process. The beans are first plunged into hot water and then the 'drying' and 'sweating' process starts. Then, they are dried in the sun during the day and then wrapped in blankets at night so they can sweat. This process can last anywhere from 2 to 6 months until the beans become a very dark brown color and develop vanillin. The vanillin is what gives the beans the wonderful flavour & aroma that these beans are prized for. At this point the beans are aged to bring out their full flavour, and this can take up to two years.

Choosing vanilla beans fine vanilla beans should have high content of vanillin and should have a rich, full aroma, be oily to the touch, and sleek in appearance. Beans to avoid are those with very little scent, brittle or dry, or are mildewed.

Types of vanilla beans bourbon (planifolia) and tahitian (tahitensis) are two of the most commercially available vanilla beans in the world market today. Bourbon beans (vanilla planifolia) are long and slender, with a very rich taste and smell, have thick, oily skin, contain an abundance of tiny seeds, and have a strong vanilla aroma. Bourbon beans from papua Indonesia are described as being creamy, haylike, and sweet, with vanillin overtones. Bourbon beans from other regions will be similar if they are picked at peak ripeness and are properly cured. Tahitian beans (vanilla tahitensis) are usually shorter, plumper, and contain a higher oil and water content than bourbon beans. The skin is thinner, they contain fewer seeds, and the aroma is fruity and floral. They are often described as smelling like licorice, cherry, prunes, or wine.

Storing vanilla beans vanilla beans are best stored in an airtight container. They need to be stored at a cool (not cold) temperature in a dark and dry place. This will ensure that the vanilla beans retain their flavour and avoid the formation of mildew.
