Mardi Gras pears return after successful debut

The Mardi Gras pear is back and ready to take center stage in the kitchen and on dining tables around the nation. First hitting the scene in the spring of 2023, the Mardi Gras pear is all about those juicy bites, perfectly balanced with a smooth, buttery finish.

"It has the consistent juicy, succulent and moreish flavor that I seek out when enjoying a pear. We are excited to once again offer this exquisite and unique pear variety to consumers."

Last season, the Mardi Gras pear won over consumers with its classic pear taste presented in a fresh variety for U.S. consumers. Its roots trace back to Europe's favorite, the Conference pear, which makes up a whopping 53 percent of E.U. pear production, steadily rising in demand and affirming its dominance in the market.

The Mardi Gras pear, renowned for its joyful mix of flavors and confetti-like russet, is a true statement of nature’s artistry. As the winter chill gives way to the warmth of spring, the Mardi Gras pear comes into season, offering a perfect blend of sweetness, juiciness and a burst of vibrant hues. This pear gives the season's spirit with a distinct appearance of vivid green and gold russet.

“In this week of Mardi Gras celebrations, we will celebrating with the Mardi Gras pear. The holiday is a time of celebrating good food, good people and good music. We are excited to 'Celebrate the Sweetness' of life, and of this joyful holiday with our exclusive pear,” said Gipe-Stewart.

This is an exclusive variety for Superfresh Growers.
