''Vanilla planifolia'' is a species of vanilla orchid. It is native to Mexico, and is one of the primary sources for vanilla flavouring, due to its high vanillin content. Common names are flat-leaved vanilla, Tahitian vanilla, and West Indian vanilla . Often, it is simply referred to as "the vanilla". It was first scientifically named in 1808.
