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

    Have been very pleased with all our purchases from Beanilla. :)
  2. Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans

    by Debra Kilpatrick on Aug 31, 2014

    These Madagascar Bourbon Beanilla Beans are really fresh. Great Value. I will be making vanilla for my daughter, son and his wife. They are looking forward to it.
  3. Great site

    by Gail Biggs on Aug 31, 2014

    Good job!
  4. First Purchase

    by Kim Hurren on Aug 31, 2014

    I've never purchased vanilla beans before but love good quality vanilla. From what I have read, these beans appear to be very good and my vanilla which has only been in the vodka a week, smells amazing. The beans arrived very quickly, especially when you consider that I am in western Canada. If my vanilla turns out to taste as good as it smells, I would not hesitate to order again.
  5. Are You Kidding Me?

    by Teri Hogan on Aug 31, 2014

    We pay $10 per bean in the grocery store and they are old and dried up. These beans are so very reasonably priced, MUCH fresher, and the customer service can't be beat. Beanilla is the best vendor find I've come across in a very long time.
  6. Quality beans

    by Dora Labrie on Aug 31, 2014

    I was impressed with the quality of the beans. Very moist and aromatic. I can't wait to see the result of my first try at making vanilla extract.

  16. First Time Buyer

    by Jordan Petram on Aug 29, 2014

    Ordered off of Beanilla for the first time less than a week ago. Beans shipped quickly and arrived within two days. Very neatly packaged and easy to deal with.
    The Madagascar bean were moist, flexible and very full of soft creamy filling. I split them all and added them to a bottle of bourbon to create vanilla extract. Now it is just waiting until it is ready.
    I'm very impressed with the service, speed and quality that I can get through Beanilla. I'm already planning my next purchase.

    That about says it all!
  25. Thanks!

    by Karen Scully on Aug 27, 2014

    The vanilla beans are so fresh! My previous experiences from other companies were that they were very dry. As this was my first purchase I did so with caution, but, I found I had nothing to worry about. The beans were vacuum sealed and delivered to Canada very quickly. Far superior to anything I can find locally. Thanks!
  26. Order was prompt

  31. Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans

    by Barbara Brown on Aug 27, 2014

    I bought these to make vanilla extract so I have not yet used the final product - but these are the moistest beans I have ever seen - full of bean "caviar" and they smell delicious. I received them within days of my order - ahead of the promised date.

    by Donna Loux on Aug 27, 2014

    by Jessica Yoon on Aug 25, 2014

    I received 10 beans from Beanilla in a vacuum sealed package. The same money would have bought me 2 beans from another store. Beanilla does recommend storing in a glass jar FYI. I will have to buy that next.

  49. Happiness!!

    by Kristie Whitley on Aug 24, 2014

    I'm enjoying the vanilla beans I purchased. I mailed two of the beans to a friend who has never made her own vanilla extract before. She told me she was enjoying the aroma so much that she just wanted to keep the beans the way they were for awhile.
