*We're currently all sold out of our Wild Pompona Vanilla! Check out our brand new Nyanza Vanilla*

Pompona Vanilla is an extremely rare species of vanilla, and ours is wild-harvested in the Peruvian Amazon. You've never had vanilla like this before.

We have an extremely limited quantity of full Pompona Vanilla pods. 1 Grade A Pod comes in a biodegradable, sustainably-grown bamboo tube.

These vanilla pods are 3-5 times the size of your typical vanilla, so feel free to cut into segments or scrape only a portion of the pod at a time, then put back in the tube until you need it next.

  • Origin: Moyobamba, Peruvian Amazon
  • Process: Sun-dried during the day, cured in wooden boxes overnight
  • Ingredients: Vanilla pompona pods
  • Tasting notes: Dried Cherry  • Chocolate • Dark Rum

COOKING

SOURCING

If a regular vanilla pod is like a string bean, Pompona Vanilla is like a sugar snap  bigger, fatter, sweeter and fuller of flavor.

These incredibly rare, wild (literally and figuratively) pods come from the Peruvian Amazon. Wild vanilla is virtually unheard of, and impossible outside of vanilla's native range, from Mexico to northern South America.

Vanilla orchids are only pollinated by a couple of species of bee, which only live in the Americas. All commercial Vanilla planifolia (most of which is grown in Madagascar) has to be hand-pollinated by the farmer once per year when the flowers bloom for just 3-5 hours.

Pompona Vanilla is pollinated by a single species called the dilemma orchid bee (amazing) and is then either picked green and cured by hand by 3 foragers over about 6 weeks, or ripened and split on the vine.

The BEST!!!!

The wild Pamplona vanilla is incredibly fragrant and flavorful. The vanilla ice cream I made was the best ever. The pound cake received raves. I hope this becomes more readily available.
