Fragrant vanilla beans are the pods or fruits obtained from a tropical climbing orchid. This prized bean is native to the tropical rain forests of Central America and was spread to other tropical regions by the Spanish explorers. Vanilla beans are available in herbs and spices stores year around. One may also find vanilla essence and vanilla sugar in these stores. Vanilla beans are usually available either singly or in small bundles, packed in a long glass tube or jar.
