Enjoy Vanilla Sunday on March 3 for an afternoon filled with sweet appreciation of the tastiest flavor obtained from an orchid.
From 1 – 4 p.m. stop by Discovery Stations in the Fuqua Orchid Center to see flourishing vanilla vines, or to learn how the vanilla pod is used to create vanilla extract. Volunteers will share their knowledge about how vanilla is produced, and how pods grown in different countries have unique flavors.
The Vanilla Sunday Station is always popular for getting a taste (while supplies last), and cooking demonstrations featuring a splash of vanilla will be offered in the Outdoor Kitchen.
The Vanilla Sunday event is part of the Orchid Daze exhibition.
