Bourbon vanilla is a fabulous product found in Reunion Island, Mayotte, Mauritius and, of course, Madagascar. This country nestled in the heart of the Indian Ocean to the east of Africa is a paradise for this exceptional product that is vanilla. Here, all the conditions are there to give life to beautiful beans full of smell and flavour.
The experts are not mistaken: Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar is a product favoured by the greatest chefs and pastry chefs.
Did you know that? Although Tahitian vanilla is also recognized, it cannot be called Bourbon vanilla, which only applies to the Indian Ocean.
I offer you here an XS bean of Malagasy vanilla that I have selected for its excellent quality. Throughout my travels, I have taken the time to appreciate the products of different local producers and I have stopped on this vanilla with a very floral fragrance and another very fruity note that stands out on the XS format.
My travels have also allowed me to select a top-of-the-range vanilla and to offer you the best quality/price ratio. I hope to be able to share with each one of you the best world grand crus that will make you, like me, fall in love with this incredible product. Let yourself be seduced by its black colour, its fleshy beans and its bewitching taste.
Vanilla is an orchid. This magnificent plant obtained by cutting puts our patience to the test. It takes 4 years for it to produce its first fruits. As soon as they flower, the flowers must be fertilized in the purest of traditions to preserve the quality of the future vanilla. Sunshine, humidity, Bourbon vanilla needs extremely favourable conditions to blossom and produce exceptional beans. The fertilised vanilla flower will wither. A few weeks later, the pod reaches its adult size. But it will take another nine months for it to reach maturity.
The natural vanilla bean then follows a very specific process:
- maturing in a wooden trunk.
The preservation of XS Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar is essential to preserve its properties and subtle taste. I advise you to put it in an airtight jar with an alcohol base or to freeze it. For more information, see my article on the conservation of vanilla.
If this exceptional product will delight your taste buds, Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar is also known for its properties. It is a natural antidepressant just like chocolate. Indulge yourself, you'll be all the better for it. Rich in polyphenols, it acts against cell ageing. Like chocolate, some say that vanilla is an aphrodisiac. But vanilla is also your slimming partner. Not very rich in sugar, it will enhance your sweet dishes while limiting carbohydrate intake. Finally, it promotes digestion, it is a real ally for your well-being.
Enjoy the aromatic power of Madagascar Bourbon vanilla in XS format! It will bring a whole new dimension to your kitchen. Fragrant and fleshy, your pods are just waiting to be split to reveal all their aromas and enhance your exotic dishes and other pastries.
Forget powdered vanilla, escape the natural flavour or vanilla extract and opt for the vanilla bean from Madagascar. Splitting fine premium quality XS vanilla beans is already a pleasure in itself, your senses will be awakened immediately.

J'ai commandé des gousses de vanille Bourbon 10-12 cm de Madagascar et j'avoue que je les ai trouvées petites et pas très charnues... mais souples et parfumées. Ceci dit, le produit correspondait à ma commande. Lors de mon prochain achat, je prendrai une taille supérieure. Je recommande ce site.
