The yellowish-green blossoms of the vanilla plant open between November and January for just a few hours in the morning and are pollinated by hand. If they are not pollinated in this brief period, they fall off the plant the same day. During the next approx. four weeks, the fertilized blossom develops an up to 20-cm long ovary. At this stage, the ripe, greenish-yellow vanilla pods have no aroma and are also harvested by hand. To prevent natural maturation, they are immersed in hot water (for approx. three minutes at 70 °C) and then sweated in a box for one day. After this, the drying and fermentation process begins, which lasts several months. During the fermentation process, the vanilla pods first turn yellowish, then dark brown and finally develop their unmistakable aroma. No chemicals are used during the entire production process for Naturata bourbon vanilla products. Genuine vanilla has a very soft and pleasant, aromatic flavour. Alongside sugar, fat and minerals, the fermented vanilla pod contains more than 130 aromatic substances. Vanillin is primarily responsible for the typical vanilla flavour. In the fresh fruit, vanillin is bound to sugar molecules. It is not until during fermentation that this bond is dissolved and the vanilla aroma is released. Some aromatic substances, which are also known as secondary plant substances, are present only as traces in the vanilla fruit. They determine the complex taste of genuine bourbon vanilla.
