My opening is purely speculative. This story might be relevant. In the 1820s, French colonists brought vanilla vines to the colony of Réunion. There was not a native pollinator for the bean and they could not develop the crop. In 1841, a 12 year old inventor named Edmond Albius discovered a technique for pollinating the Vanilla orchid. Albius was a slave owned by a French botanist at the time.6

Mexico was the primary source for vanilla at the time. In 1910, there was a revolution in Mexico. This disrupted the world's vanilla supply.
