Vanilla Beans Of Feneos 500g
Produced in the mountain valley of Feneos in the north Peloponnese, “Beans Vanilies Feneos” is a small, oval-shaped, white, thin-skinned bean, with 1000 seeds weighing between 270 and 280g. Its sweet taste, ability to boil easily, and the fact that after boiling the seeds and the soft flesh are still intact without being separated from the peel, makes them particularly appealing. They have no preservatives and no pesticides. The net weight is 500g and their packaging involves a vacuum pack.
