Opening a pouch of Ugandan vanilla beans for the first time is a memorable experience. Your nose will be met with a familiar vanilla smell, but with hints of raisins or figs. As you remove one of these plump vanilla beans from the pouch, you will be intrigued by its soft texture and its plump appearance. As you smell the individual bean, the fruity base will become more pronounced, evoking thoughts of cinnamon rolls, banana breads, orange rolls and other fruit-based baking applications that are perfect for this vanilla bean.

The soil and climate of Uganda provide an environment that results in a bold and earthy vanilla bean taste with hints of figs and raisins, accentuated only by the vanilla bean's natural rich and buttery softer vanilla notes. Ugandan vanilla beans typically contain a higher-than-average vanillin content. This makes them perfect for vanilla extracts along with darker chocolate, sweet breads, fruit-based desserts or strong vanilla desserts. 

We sell by the ounce, not by the bean, to ensure that you get the same amount every time no matter the bean size of any particular harvest. 

Ugandan vanilla beans are a favorite in baking and DIY extract making with a fruit sensation that enhances your favorite tarts, pies, custards and creams.  

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

delicious flavor

The flavor of this Ugandan vanilla bean is very delicious. I am so glad I purchased this and utilizing the group buy option was worth the wait

My favorite vanilla bean by far

I took advantage of Vanilla Pura’s buy 3oz get 1oz free to get 3 ozs of my favorite vanilla bean, the Ugandan, and for the free oz I decided to try the Sumatra Indonesian beans. So far, I have an Ugandan double fold extracting in silver tequila that will be done this summer, I can’t wait. The fig, raisin and chocolate undertones of the Ugandan beans make a great addition to holiday baking.


Seriously Ugandan beans are my go to. I adore the heavy, rich chocolate undertones, the oiliness and the plumpness from being filled with caviar. They hold up to any alcohol and never disappoint on the final extract. VP’s Ugandan beans are an excellent quality and choice.

made several bottles of extract and 6 cups of sugar for a very special friend..... thanks again
