Kashi Organic Vegan Breakfast Cereal Island Vanilla
Discover: Vanilla Bean
Grown in the hot, humid climates of the Tropics and Mesoamerica, vanilla pods are the only edible fruit of the orchid flower. For centuries, farmers have pollinated the delicate white flowers by hand to produce the cherished vanilla bean. After nine months, the green vanilla beans turn dark yellow, signaling the growers to harvest. Once they are heat-cured, vanilla beans blacken and reveal their distinct flavor and aroma.
