Tattoos on Vanilla Beans

It's quite common to see a few Madagascar beans with a visible tattoo. These markings could easily be mistaken as insect damage, but they're really a series of pin-pricks that identify the bean grower. The Malagasy alphabet has these letters: a, b, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, r, s, t, v, y, z.
