Oblong-leaved Vanilla Orchid "Beans" (Vanilla phaeantha)
Vanilla "beans" in the Fakahatchee Strand in SW Florida. Very similar yet not quite the same as commercial vanilla beans which come from another vanilla orchid - Vanilla planifolia. They do however have a strong vanilla scent when the seedpods are fully developed.
