This week's featured product is Orchids.

Orchids are members of the Orchidaceae family of flowering plants that have captured the admiration of horticulturists, perfumists, food producers, and flower-admirers worldwide since the 19th Century. There are more than 20,000 species of orchids catalogued, with several hundred added each year. Originally a tropical and subtropical plant, species have been bred to exist in most climates. Orchids are not only valued for their beauty, but some also produce foods as well such as the beanpod of the genus Vanilla.
