The Different Uses and Varieties of Bourbon Vanilla Beans

Bourbon Vanilla is a generic term for Vanilla Planifolia and is the variety of vanilla most commonly used for producing vanilla extract. Vanilla Planifolia stock originated in Mexico, vanilla’s birthplace, but cuttings were taken to other tropical regions in the 1700s. This type of vanilla is ideal for use in baking, as well as desserts such as ice cream and crème brulee. In the 1800s, the French developed large plantations on the Bourbon Islands (now called Reunion) off the coast of Madagascar, hence the name Bourbon Vanilla. The name has no relation to Bourbon alcohol.

Why Choose Native Vanilla for Ethically Sourced Vanilla Beans

We hope you get as much satisfaction from this ground vanilla powder in your recipes as we do in bringing it to you. Native Vanilla is about a lot more than vanilla. We are a company that is passionate about helping people. We strive to improve communities in Papua New Guinea by providing training and resources to micro-farmers. Then they can raise the yield and quality of their crop thereby improving their financial security. Native Vanilla is focused on, assisting around 400 micro-farmers, with plans to double that number within a year.  When you purchase Native Vanilla products remember this; you’re not only getting the world’s finest vanilla; you’re also doing a world of good.

Vanilla Facts

  • Nearly 30% of Americans choose vanilla as their No. 1 ice cream flavor.
  • Only the Melipona bee, found in Central America, can pollinate vanilla. In other parts of the world, humans replicate the process using a wooden needle.
  • The flower that produces the vanilla bean lives for only one day.
  • Vanilla beans are hand-picked and then cured, wrapped, and dried in a process that can take between four and six months.
  • Vanilla vines grow 30-50 ft tall, supported by a host tree or posts.

Just ok

This was my first time ordering from this company. I have ordered from a few other companies over the last 10 years (Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla). These beans were smaller and skinnier (possibly due to PNG origin?). The price was better but I would need more of these to equal the same amount elsewhere. They were still moist. I am glad they weren't dried out, but smaller, less plump beans = less flavor. Keep that in mind. Probably should have been labeled Grade B and the packaging had no indication that they were Bourbon Vanilla Beans. They have a different aroma as well, possibly due to PNG origin.

Great Beans!

I've been so happy with the quality of the beans! They smell amazing and "fresh". Can't wait to incorporate these beans into holiday baking and other various gifts. Shipping is so fast! I'm always so excited to see my Native Vanilla package arrive in my mailbox.

Ah-Mazing!

I really enjoy the beans I get from NV. I have ordered several pounds since July in order to make some really amazing products to share with friends and family. Each order has been shipped and received in a very timely manner. These beans are wonderful!!! Thank you for having naturally sourced beans. I am also a bee keeper, it is very important to me to be able to support other bee keepers.

An outstanding gift!

These were purchased as a gift. I got an excited call when the kids received them. They were raving about the aroma - and they hadn't even opened the bag yet! They absolutely loved them.

Use in carbonated water

I never throw out my 2 liter bottles from plain sparkling water. Every few months I buy $4.00 worth of dry ice, fill my bottles 4/5 full with cold tap water, add about 2” chunk of dry ice and seal. Makes about 80 liters or more. I chill it to drink, and add a tsp of vanilla tincture, no sugar… tastes great.
