Welcome Slashfood readers. Vanilla beans from Huahua Farm on the Big Island of Hawaii are now available for sale.
The price is a bit higher than last year: $8.50 for 2 beans (including postage). These are still the cheapest Hawaiian vanilla beans you can buy. This is the 2007-2008 crop that I reviewed here.
