"The Mardi Gras pear is what I think of as pinnacle pear taste,” said Cat Gipe-Stewart, Marketing Director. “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 United States consumers. According to a press release, its roots trace back to the Conference pear, which makes up 53 percent of EU pear production, steadily rising in demand and affirming its dominance in the market.
