What plant produces vanilla?

Answer:

ORCHIDS

Whether it's vanilla extract in your chocolate chip cookies or vanilla beans for ice cream, vanilla is used in many different recipes. But did you know that Vanilla comes from an orchid? The most widely used orchid to produce vanilla is the Vanilla planifolia. After the Vanilla orchid flower is pollinated, the orchid’s seed pod develops into what we know as a vanilla bean. Once they are harvested, they are sold either as vanilla beans or used to create vanilla extract. Today, Mexico and Madagascar is where most vanilla is grown and harvested commercially.
