This project sounds excellent for domestic use and could develop into a large export industry perhaps in future decades.

Wow, I’ve heard it is extremely difficult to grow vanilla to the point where you can actually harvest them. Kudos to those that try - there must be a lot of hits and miss that must be heartbreaking.

We love vanilla beans! Would be interesting to be able to buy some that are domestically grown. Hope this project is successful in producing a good product and providing jobs.
