- Tahitian Vanilla Beans (Tahiti)
The major differences between Tahitian vanilla and Indonesian Vanilla tahitiensis is the size. These beans are enormous! These vanilla beans are 2-3 times as plump as other varieties and therefore contain significantly more caviar inside of the bean. Vanilla from Tahiti is Beanilla's favorite!
Why are these vanilla beans more expensive than other varieties? First and foremost, their size and caviar content mean each Tahitian vanilla bean is about twice the size of other vanilla beans. Vanilla beans from Tahiti are huge!
Second, Tahiti is a fairly developed country, especially compared to other regions that grow vanilla. This equates to significantly higher production costs. The farmers we work with in Tahiti are very proud of their product and simply can not sell it for what other countries do. Selling vanilla for any less would simply not be sustainable. We are proud to support these farmers.

What Everyone is Saying
Your question will appear on the site once someone answers it.
Thank you for your question, you can use the same amount of Tahitian vanilla beans as you did the Madagascar. The Tahitians will have a chocolate cherry undertone that makes a sweeter extract. We are hoping to have some PNG Tahitian vanilla beans in stock by the end of the month.
We hope to have the incredible vanilla beans from Tahiti back in stock by September or October. Tahiti had a very small crap last year (10 - 25% of the normal size!) so we were only able to get our hands on a small amount. Stay tuned, we will send an e-mail to all of our customers and newsletter subscribes as soon as they are back.
We carry two different types of Tahitensis Vanilla Beans ones from Tahiti and ones from Indonesia. Our true Tahitian Tahitiensis Vanilla Beans from Tahiti are light brown in color, flat, soft, pliable, with a floral aroma and a fruit, sweet flavor. Our Indonesian Tahitiensis Vanilla Beans are dark brown in color, shorter, pliable, with a flowery aroma and a fruity, smooth flavor.
Hope this information helps. Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns!
