Mann Packing Co. will debut its new Caulilini baby cauliflower 10 oz retail pack at the United Fresh Produce Association’s 2019 Convention & Expo in Chicago June 10-12.

Caulilini is an Asian-style variety that features green stems and blonde, open florets. Its unique shape adds both taste and texture to side dishes, crudité platters and entrée builds. The product is entirely edible – from flower to stem – and has a sweet, tender stalk that turns bright green when cooked. It comes washed and ready to eat and has year-round availability.

For retail customers, Caulilini will be available in a 6 / 10 oz. pack, with North American distribution beginning in mid-July.

“Caulilini baby cauliflower was an immediate hit with our foodservice customers when we introduced it last year due to its unique look, flavor and versatility,” says Rick Russo, Mann’s vice president. “Consumers have been hounding us on social media asking when they can find it in their grocery store, which is exactly the demand we were hoping to create by giving it to chefs first.”
