VanillaPura's V. planifolia Comoros Vanilla Beans are of the highest quality and have a very unique aroma and taste profile. Given its location near Madagascar, it boasts all the traits of a sweet Madagascar vanilla bean. But underneath that classic vanilla aroma and taste, you will discover hints of chocolate, caramel and, yes... marshmallows. It's a soft note of sweetness and the word "marshmallow" seems to describe it best. It's truly a unique vanilla experience.
The Comoros islands are a very small and remote part of our world. Hidden on most world maps by the massive neighboring country of Madagascar to its East, and the continent of Africa to its West. Yet, there it lies in the Mozambique Channel with its beautiful capital city Moroni as the commerce hub of the country.
(Comoros is nestled between Madagascar and Mozambique)
We named this beautiful bean The Sima, after one Comoros' more tropical, quaint and beautiful towns that highlights the rich soils and beautiful climate required to produce these rare and exotic vanilla beans.

The Sima Comoros vanilla beans are oily and high in vanillin content. These are plump vanilla beans, and are usually between 5" and 7" inches long and have a dark brown color. Great for sugars, salts and powders when dried, in addition to their excellent use in extracts.
VanillaPura vanilla beans are all shipped vacuum sealed for freshness and should be stored unrefrigerated in a cool, dry and dark place.
On average, there are 5-8 beans/oz depending on the moisture content of the specific batch of vanilla beans. There can be as few as 5 beans or as many as 15 beans. Pricing reflects current market conditions and will be updated as market prices change.
