Jan. 17, 2013 - PRLog -- Vanilla ranks second only to saffron as the world's most valuable spice commodity and it grows wild throughout Naturewalk . In total there are six (6) different vanilla varieties that grow in the protected forest reserves of Naturewalk. Naturewalk has moved forward to put this valuable spice into commercial production starting with 1500 plants planted per hectare

Says Joshua Fuks of the Naturewalk Farming Company at Naturewalk, “ We know the spice grows exceptionally well naturally at Naturewalk and we recognize that we have the right conditions for its cultivation. So its a case of producing more of it with added scientific support and research. We plan to grow it organically  and sustainably which is a plus also.”

Naturewalk combines beautiful building lots with high value agricultural commodities and the introduction of vanilla as a crop in Naturewalk is a logical progression.

Tim Alexander from NATUREWALK BRANDS, the developers of Naturewalk, commented "our model of combining development parcels with high value agricultural commodities growing on them is not only good for the environment but good for our owners and investors. This hybrid offering allows them to own a home in paradise whilst generating an income return. Because vanilla already grows well at  Naturewalk it is natural fit for our agricultural production. We are currently investigating the possibility of inter-cropping the vanilla with teak growing on our lots".

Naturewalk plans at a future point to incorporate this technology into full fledged spice and vanilla farm as a further tourist attraction in addition to the to Coffee and Pineapple Plantation and the Naturewalk Adventure Center. Currently Naturewalk grows teak, jatropha, macauba, coffee, pineapple, nampi and tiquisque on its residential parcels. A range of home designs are available in addition to custom homes built for our clients.

NATUREWALK is an ecologically based master planned development in the Central Pacific area of Costa Rica and is part of NATUREWALK BRANDS, an ecological and lifestyle based company headquartered in San Jose, Costa Rica. In the Natuerwalk developments smart hybrid investment in agricultural plantations is combined with a great lifestyle, vacation and retirement opportunities.
