Organic Vanilla Beans (Indian)

    Organic Indian vanilla beans are sweet, creamy and extremely aromatic. Many will contest that the sweet woodsy flavor profile of these beans are superior to that of the Madagascar variety. Indian Vanilla Beans can be used in many of the same applications where Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans are used.

    1. Terrific!

      by Darlene VanOveren on Mar 15, 2015

      Would do business again without any reservations. Great company and speedy delivery!

    4. Organic Beans from India

      by Kirsten Parris on Feb 21, 2015

      I could not be happier with the vanilla beans I just received. I make large quantities of my own vanilla, and within three days the 6 pods that I split and put in some vodka had already turned the liquid a nice dark amber brown. If I did not know better, I would say the beans had steeped for months. Thanks for offering such superior products!
    5. Lovely beans !!!!

      by Russell West on Feb 20, 2015

      I have been making my own vanilla extract for years and I can say that the Indian beans were AMAZING !!!! They were very plump and had a lot of caviar (the small black beans on the inside.) the smell wonderful and started to darken the vodka right away. I also like to dehydrate some of the beans and than break off bits and grind it with my coffee beans, it makes coffee taste wonderful :)
    6. Smells wonderful

      by Robyn Robinson on Feb 18, 2015

      Eager to try the finished vanilla in a couple months.
    7. Wonderful product

      by Connie Degnan on Feb 12, 2015

      Website was clear, thorough and easily navigated. Product I purchased came promptly and was as indicated on your site. Instructions for making my own vanilla extract were appreciated and fun to do.

      Wonderful fragrance! Excellent quality! Fast shipping! Two thumbs up :)
    10. They smell delicious

      by Janette Van Kirk on Feb 11, 2015

      I immediately split these beans and put into a bottle of vodka to make vanilla extract so I have not had the opportunity to taste-test them, but they are soft and moist and smell glorious!
    11. LOVE the Indian vanilla beans

      by Racheal on Feb 1, 2015

      They were so moist and plump - nice, big beans, and a great price for what you are getting with these beans. One of my favorite of the three types that I have tried and will definitely buy again. Gave some away in the small glass cylinders you can buy here also, and they make a perfect gift. Definitely recommend.
    12. Very pleased

      by Nicole Walton on Jan 29, 2015

      Bought these for homemade Vanilla. Wonderful quality and price. Fast standard shipping. Happy mom here.

    14. I am hooked on Beanilla

      by Ellen Simonis on Jan 18, 2015

      I was a little iffy on the price as the # of beans given is a range. BUT - I started my first batch of vanilla today and still have enough beans to make several more batches! SO EXCITED!!! Will definitely be returning to Beanilla to order more products for my own culinary adventures and for gifting!
    15. Organic Option

      by Jennifer on Jan 15, 2015

      I love that these are organic! I have since tried Tahitian and prefer them, but these are fine too :)

      by Pat Roderique on Dec 27, 2014

      I ran out of vodka, but I got two bottles started, gave one to my eldest daughter for Christmas. The beans were moist, incredibly fragrant. I can't wait for it to be ready to use!

    19. Tasty!

      by Brian Thiellen on Dec 18, 2014

      Not sure I'll use these again, but fine, no less.
    25. Excellent

      by Julie Strauss on Jun 21, 2014

      Great product, excellent price.

      by Charles Holewinski on Jun 15, 2014

      HI THERE:

      The order was for 25 Indian vanilla beans and 6 bottles the round ones with cork stoppers.

      All came as expected. The beans were very fresh vacuumed packaged. Upon splitting them open the contents of the beans was very sticky similar to a paste. Per your recommendation the cheapest Vodka was used to make the vanilla extract. Paid $10.95 for 1.75 liters. Basically nearly all Vodka is distilled grain alcohol which has been diluted with water to about 40% or 80 proof. Using anything more expensive is an absolute waste of money since all the alcohol evaporates during the baking process and therefore contributes nothing to the final product. Used 5 beans for 8 ounces of Vodka. Don't know if your recommendation of letting it steep for 8 weeks is entirely necessary. After only two weeks the extract has taken on a very deep dark color. The aroma is already the equal to the store bought extract and its flavor is a little bit stronger. Yesterday checked the price of vanilla extract in the local super market. 4 ounces is $9.99. Making the extract is very easy. The most difficult part is sending/shopping for the items needed to make it. I plan on giving a bottle of extract as a Christmas present to each of my friends who enjoy baking with high quality ingredients. Nothing on the supermarket shelves comes close to the homemade product. CWH
    27. First time order

      by Larry Knight on May 12, 2014

      This was my first time ordering from Beanilla. I'm working on making my own extract and vanilla sugar. That aside, they have a customer for life. The price, quality and packaging was outstanding! I highly recommend your next purchase come from here.
    28. Good assortment of quality beans

    39. Amazing Beans;)!!

      by Emily Rider on Mar 22, 2014

      I received the beans fast and was overwhelmingly suprised how many were in the package. Over 95 beans were in the vacuumed sealed bag. I cut open the packed and was thrilled to see how plump and juicy these pods were. I will be back to purchase more and will send vanilla bean lovers to beanilla. I forgot to mention the best part I was referred by a friend and glad she sent me to beanilla. My kids love the vanilla bean icecream I now get to make having a economical resource to buy vanilla beans from. And they are organic to boot;)!!
    40. Impressed

      by Cory Odegard on Mar 20, 2014

      All in all, not all. Great product. The beans were well packaged and moist and pliable when I opened the package. Will order again.
    41. Great deal

      by Katie Lewis on Mar 15, 2014

      Was looking for high quality vanilla beans but didn't want to pay the exorbitant prices. Stumbled upon beanilla and I am so thankful I did.
    42. First Time Buyer

      by Lily Webster on Mar 13, 2014

      I was so very pleased with the entire Beanilla site. The variety of options and the amazing price tag were just the beginning. I ordered these Indian vanilla beans as I had only ever tried Madagascar bourbon before. They were light and oaky and they worked amazingly in my custard and rice pudding. It took less than a week for my order to arrive and I was so pleased I placed another order by the weeks end.

    48. First timer

      by Alisha Azoulay on Jan 25, 2014

      I recently started baking and was in the market for reasonably priced vanilla beans. I wanted to make homemade vanilla extract since it's so expensive at the grocery store. My extract has about 5 weeks before I'll know the quality, but I made a few desserts with the vanilla caviar and it was wonderful. I cannot wait to dig into my vanilla extract!!
    49. fabulous service

      I ordered from Beanilla before and had such a wonderful experience that I ordered again. The beans are wonderful and my vanilla turns out perfectly every time. I like that I can create my own vanilla with the beans I buy. I love the variety.

      by Lena Berchielli on Sep 25, 2013

      These Indian vanilla beans are my absolute favorite, just what I was hoping for. These beans are exactly as described. They are what I think of when I think of a traditional vanilla bean. Very prompt shipping too.

      Really excited about these. Used two for vanilla pear jam and produced alovely flavor. Made my own extract and there were thousands of seeds in very fresh, fat pods, beautiful color and aroma!
    80. good for bakiing

      by Edward McCarthy on Sep 6, 2013

      strong flavor notes .
    81. I'm a fan!

      by Jan Zmuda on Aug 28, 2013

      This is my first time purchasing, and first time at making vanilla extract. I bought a 10-pack of Madagascar, and 5-packs of both India and Indonesian beans. I placed the order by phone - GREAT customer service and very speedy delivery of product (FREE shipping too!). So I am both excited that i placed the order and VERY pleased with the service. Here's where things get even better -

      After I placed my order I sat down and changed my plans and decided to make two different extracts - one using bourbon and the other using vodka - to see how dramatic the differences would be. But since I wanted to use the exact same blend I realized I needed more beans. I happened to be on another "generic shopping site" that sells everything, and sure enough they had several vendors selling vanilla beans. Since I was already buying some books and CD's I added some vanilla beans to my order (also free shipping.)

      BOY WAS I SURPRISED - I got the packs of beans from this other vendor and while they were cheaper, they were also half as biig! The Beanilla beans were HUGE - the "brand X" beans were much shorter and less then half as thick.

      I have already bookmarked Beanilla as the ONLY vendor for vanilla bean purchases!

      Now all I have to do is wait a few more months to try my extracts!
    82. Beans

      by Francine Crocker on Aug 24, 2013

      Great Beans!!
    83. Unimpressed

      by Christopher McCue on Aug 24, 2013

      Ordered the Madagascar, Indian, Ugandan and Tongan beans, these were unquestionably the least impressive. Drier and less flexible beans with less caviar per bean than any of the others. Significantly less powerful aroma and a less complex flavour. An interesting comparison, but I won't buy these again.
    84. Hmmmm...not my favorite

      by Elizabeth Oertel on Aug 21, 2013

      The beans I received were not pretty, smelled swell and will make fine extract/sugar I think, but they were really kind of ugly. Sorry to say. Beanilla did replace them w/lovely Ugandan beans very quickly - really, Beanilla is the most wonderful company to do business with, quite a pleasure. So while these beans were not so great - Beanilla made everything good! :)

      by DENISE FITCH on Aug 16, 2013

      First time trying this product. Everything I have ever purchased from Beanilla has been exceptional quality & flavor so this hopefully will be as well.
    86. A Bean of paradise

      by Ryan J McCarty on Aug 15, 2013

      These Indian vanilla beans are great. The vacuum seal packaging held in all the dark aromas and rich flavors.
    87. quite disappointed

      by Jenney Liew on Jun 16, 2013

      i had a total of 77 beans in a half-pound package (was estimated to be approx. 50 beans). I guess that showed how light they were considering their length ( average of 7.5 inches). Most of the beans were quite dry. Some of them were really flat. A few of them even snapped when i tried bending them. As i live very far away from the US , it's not worthwhile for me to return the merchandise. I'm disappointed that the vanilla beans that i'd been looking forward to so much, didn't turn out to be like what the other customers claimed, "plump & pliable". However, the prompt response from the sales department is commendable!
    88. Big Bang for your Buck

      by Kerry Johnson on May 30, 2013

      These vanilla beans aren't as moist as the Tahitian ones but they do have a lot of seeds in them. I mixed them with the Tahitian beans to make vanilla. Good price and good to use when I bake.
    89. Very moist and plump.

      by Joseph Kiszka on May 20, 2013

      Very moist and plump. Currently making extract with them.

      by Susan Steadle-Phillips on Mar 29, 2013

      I ordered a half pound of these value beans and had enough to share with several of my friends and still have 59 beans in a beautiful old tequila bottle with three cups of vodka - man, this is going to be some strong extract when it is done (and with that many beans, it won't take long!). Highly recommended.

    99. Not satisfied

      by Doug Richardson on Dec 28, 2012

      Overall I was not very satisfied. Some of the beans were full of seeds others were completely dried out. The outer shell was completely dry on most of the beans. The company did replace my beans without me even asking for it, so overall I am satisfied. Beanilla is an excellent company; fantastic service...
