Olivier Rœllinger's words

This pompona vanilla bean (Vanilla pompona) has a cookie/biscuit-like bouquet and hints of almond milk .


10 years ago, a stonemason in French Guiana developed a passion for growing vanilla beans. He gathered several vanilla orchids from the tropical forest, and then propagated them in his garden.

Today, the same man tends 600 Vanilla pompona grandiflora vines.

He has renamed them "Finga" because the beans grow in bunches that look like the fingers of a hand.
