Reunion is really a French Island in the Southern Indian part and Ocean of the Vanilla Island Group.

On Reunion and in Le Bocage in Sainte-Suzanne lends its bucolic setting to the vanilla festival for 5 days. Year this, vanilla shares the poster with the sharp bourbon cocoa and coffee. Producers, artists’ august associations and fairgrounds are in a celebratory mood from 08 to 12.

The first magistrate of the populous city, Maurice Gironcel, isn’t proud to recall that the experience of vanilla began in Sainte-Suzanne in 1841, whenever a small slave named Edmond Albius discovered the procedure of fertilization of the orchid, imported from Mexico, only edible orchid, considered a spice.

Reunion, year each, produces about 4 a great deal of black vanilla and 25 a great deal of green pods. They’re about ten producers distributed between East and North to cultivate these vines in undergrowth, under-greenhouse or in interlayer with the cane. The production is random said Dominique Delmas however, the lands were left by the farmer of Sainte-Rose last March where he was in “lease à ferme”, taking with him a big portion of the 3,500 feet he cultivated since a decade there. While looking forward to new land on Saint-André, he maintains for the brief moment his vanilla and cuttings in pots on a plot before his home. Dominique Delmas who produces and transforms himself about 400 kilos of pods at each harvest will undoubtedly be present on the stands of the Bocage.
“The festival can be a chance to support those who work with the sector,” said Maurice Gironcel, and “if another islands of the Indian Ocean produce even, Reunion may be the cradle of the plant. We fight in order that Edmond Albius, like Maloya, is regarded as intangible heritage of Unesco. ”

A new centre has been renovated in Bellevue, it shall be part, completed a memory circuit once. For the time being, the scented pod named among the best vanilla on earth will undoubtedly be honored for 5 days
