Vanilla Plants - Tahiti In Tahiti, they specialize in growing premium vanilla orchid plants and the variety is Vanilla tahitensis. Its cousin Vanilla planifolia is grown primarily in Madagascar and known as “Bourbon” vanilla, but the Tahiti variety is more oily, more plump and has many seeds per bean, making it the variety of choice for gourmet pastry chefs and cuisine. rok-flowers rok-orchids

Rob-Half runner-Beans
Rob-Half runner-Beans Rob in the Mid-Atlantic sent us this close up picture of his fourth batch of beans this season. Fantastic color on the beans! He planted two 15' rows, one with Be-1 and the other with his usual conventional fertilizer. The Be-1 row produced 2/3 more than the other with his usual conventional non-organic fertilizer. He also says that with Be-1, they have grown and grilled more squash and zucchini than ever before. Most important, how was the taste? Good going, Rob! rok-vegetables
