Hand-plucked from the orchids of Madagascar.

Bourbon Vanilla Bean
(vanilla planifolia)
Vanilla Bean, Whole

We source our Spice Islands® bourbon vanilla beans only from Madagascar, considered by gourmet chefs and master bakers to be the world’s finest.

Some vanillas you find in the store may have been sourced from Mexico, Indonesia or Tahiti. But in Madagascar, the warm, moist climate and rich soil produce vanilla with the deep, rich flavor you’ll love in your desserts and baked goods.

To use, simply split open the top layer and scrape out the flavorful seeds.

Fun Fact: Vanilla beans come from orchids. Every orchid must be pollinated by hand on the very day it blooms. The painstaking process means the beans are quite valuable. In fact, some growers actually brand each bean to prevent theft.

Our Vanilla Bean is only vanilla bean. Spice Islands® spices and herbs don’t contain added sugar, fillers or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
