A hairy tissue produces vanillin.
Israel Journal of Plant Sciences Vol. 51 2003 pp. 157–159.
A unique secretory tissue produces the most important flavoring agent. Vanillin accumulates in the secretion around the seeds in the mature fruit of the vanilla orchid. A unique secretory tissue that is composed of closely packed unicellular hairs is located in the three gaps between the placentas along the central fruit cavity. These cells contain enzymes that are involved in vanillin biosyntheis and seem to be responsible for vanillin secretion.
