VanillaPura's V. tahitensis Alofi vanilla beans are of the highest quality and boast a flavor as rare and beautiful as their country of origin. This particular vanilla bean originates from South Pacific. East pf Tonga and part of the New Zealand Nation, this tiny little island takes pride in its vanilla cultivation ensuring that each vanilla bean represents the culture and culinary possibilities grown from its fertile soils under the care of its dedicated farmers.   

Niue on map

When you first open a pouch of Alofi vanilla beans, your nose will be met with a familiar but uniquely sweet vanilla aroma. You will tease out conspicuous undertones of cherry and tart plumb within seconds. After extraction is complete, your finished extract will demonstrate an elegant vanilla aroma as the cherry and plumb undertones melt into the vanilla and spirit, exposing the true essence of this sweet vanilla bean.

Niuean vanilla beans are very oily and great for use in making vanilla sugar. They boast a high vanillin content that is expected in most South Pacific vanilla producing regions. They are ideal for virtually any baking application where conspicuous vanilla sweetness is desired. These are plump vanilla beans, and are usually between 5" and 8" inches long and have a dark brown color. 

VanillaPura vanilla beans are all shipped vacuum sealed for freshness and should be stored unrefrigerated in a cool, dry and dark place.
