The Different Uses and Varieties of Bourbon Vanilla Beans

Bourbon Vanilla is a generic term for Vanilla Planifolia and is
the variety of vanilla most commonly used for producing vanilla
extract. Vanilla Planifolia stock originated in Mexico, vanilla’s
birthplace, but cuttings were taken to other tropical regions in the
1700s. This type of vanilla is ideal for use in baking, as well as
desserts such as ice cream and crème brulee. In the 1800s, the French
developed large plantations on the Bourbon Islands (now called Reunion)
off the coast of Madagascar, hence the name Bourbon Vanilla. The name
has no relation to Bourbon alcohol.
