Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans are very distinct, with a flavor and aroma profile unlike any other vanilla bean. Madagascar vanilla beans are processed using the "Bourbon" curing method. This technique typically produces vanilla beans with higher moisture content. Our gourmet vanilla beans have a moisture content of roughly 33%. You'll notice that there are no breaks or splits within the vanilla beans; another indication of extremely high quality.

The Best Source

"...Madagascar vanilla beans stand up to cooking and have a lovely, warm flavor. The Best Source: Buying vanilla beans in bulk is a great value. Beanilla Trading sells beans, extracts, and powders from around the world, in a variety of quantities. Madagascar beans, $13 for 10,"

Taste-Test Winners, Martha Stewart Living, April 2010

Best of the Bean

"For smooth, pure-tasting vanilla extract, make your own...If you want to fill several bottles, it's worth buying the pods in bulk. charges $13 for 10 (Madagascar variety); the site also sells glass jars"

Ask Martha, Martha Stewart Living, February 2011

Beans In Bulk

"...To save money, order vanilla beans online from sites such as You'll end up spending a lot less ($13 plus shipping for 10 Madagascar beans) than you would buying them from a supermarket. And of course, the more beans you buy, the cheaper they are."

DIY Vanilla Extract, America's Test Kitchen D.I.Y Cookbook, 2012


"No matter the variety, sourcing from high-quality distributors is a must to ensure the freshest, most nuanced beans....Beans should be moist and very pliable; a stiff, brittle feel indicates that the flavor-packed essential oils have evaporated. Stored in a sealed container away from sunlight, vanilla pods will keep for up to a year."

—Elizabeth Gunnison Dunn, Vanilla Beans That Are Anything but Plain Vanilla, The Wall Street Journal, Sept. 21, 2013

  2. Amazing...just amazing!

    by Donna Fritz on Apr 15, 2014

    Amazing product...amazing prices! Can't believe it took me this long to find you guys! Now that I've found a reliable and affordable source for vanilla beans, I won't cringe everytime I come across a recipe that calls for an entire vanilla bean. You just made baking even more fun than it already is!
  3. Great value

  5. Madagascar Vanilla Beans

    by Ann Fairweather on Apr 14, 2014

    This is my first time purchasing beans from beanilla. I bought Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans. They came quickly and smell wonderful. I am anxious to try my first batch of homemade vanilla. I am sure it will be perfect. Thank you Beanilla!
  6. Great product

    by Rose Brunsman on Apr 14, 2014

    I have bought vanilla beans twice to make vanilla extract - just slice the beans and put them in vodka and let them age. Beanilla's vanilla beans are a great value at 25 for $25, big moist bean pods in air-tight packaging. The vanilla extract turns out great!
  7. Best ice cream

    by Kathy Benson on Apr 14, 2014

    Great buy, flavor and freshness spot on, best homemade ice cream I have every made.
  8. My first time to puchase vanilla beans

    by S Debra Santaniello on Apr 12, 2014

    Fantastic product! So excited to have found Beanilla...passing on this site to my friends.
  11. Beautiful flavorful beans!

    by Christie Klungervik on Apr 12, 2014

    Why buy old shriveled up beans from the grocery store when these are so much better and so much more economical? I'm never buying beans anywhere else again!

  16. Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans

    by Debbie King on Apr 11, 2014

    Received order 2 days after I placed it Great service
  17. Very pleased with the beans

    by Elizabeth Lynch on Apr 11, 2014

    Beans arrived in a timely manner and beans were shrink wrapped. There were nearly 60 beans in the package and beans were moist and slightly oily. I used extra beans than stated in most recipes to make double strength vanilla. My homemade vanilla has been aging for about 3 weeks and when I open the bottle cap it smells amazing. Will buy beans again from Beanilla to make Christmas gifts. I'm so encouraged by my vanilla results that I may try the Kahula.
  18. Fast Delivery!

  30. Love it!

    by Begaim Abdraeva on Apr 7, 2014

    Wish the package was re-sealable. But in general absolutely loved it!
  31. Madagascar Vanilla Beans

    by Leann Webber on Apr 6, 2014

    I was completely blown away by how fresh, moist, fragrant and more than reasonably priced the beans are. My recipes using your vanilla instead of the hard single bean available at local grocery store were taken to an entirely new level of flavor. I use to to pay for one bean what I paid for the entire pack from you. So glad I discovered you and can't wait to try all the varieties available. I'm truly inspired! Oh and I made the vanilla sugar - unbelievable I am officially converted to vanilla sugar for everything! Going to give vanilla sugar in decanters to everyone this Christmas thanks to Beanilla! Thanks so much - your newest loyal customer!
  32. worth the money

    by Sue Morgan on Apr 6, 2014

    I have purchased vanilla beans here before and they were great so when I needed more naturally I came back to Beanilla. I was not disappointed. The beans were plump and packaged to stay fresh. I will definitely tell my friends and I will be back for more.
