Ile Bourbon, as it was once called, is also an important producer of vanilla. Réunion Island is now home to a world class collection of Vanilla species. Many wild orchids and Vanilla species were in flower when we participated in a scientific meeting there in December 2013. This presentation will introduce the wild orchids and Vanilla of Réunion Island.
