IndriVanilla vanilla beans are full-bodied, natural Bourbon vanilla beans (Vanilla planifolia). They are grown, harvested, and cured in small batches by a farmer's co-op on the island of Java in Indonesia. IndriVanilla purchases direct from the farmer at fair trade prices. We guarantee they are fresh, flavorful, and fragrant. The glossy black beans are soft and pliable--no brittle beans here! They are grown organically without pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic chemicals.
