Sambavanilla is proud to announce the arrival of the new 2020 vanilla harvest from Madagascar.
This year, the 2020-2021 season kicks off almost a month early. The favorable climatic conditions made it possible to harvest earlier than in previous years.
The 2020 vintage promises to be very good in quality, and the quantity of vanilla harvested this year in Madagascar is nearly 25% higher than the previous harvest.
A quality vanilla for 2020:
The green vanilla pods harvested at full maturity from the month of May have undergone the traditional and ancestral preparation process in Madagascar, first going through sun drying, then drying in the shade before being refined. in crates.
Our maturing in rosewood cases is essential in the vanilla preparation stage and it is at this stage that the aromas finish developing.
This season, vanilla has developed intense, woody aromas with hints of red fruits and prunes.

This year, with the new harvest comes lower prices. Although global demand for vanilla remains strong, the increase in volumes is causing vanilla prices to fall automatically. Madagascar being the world's largest producer of vanilla, world vanilla market prices are adjusting accordingly.
