Packham pears are medium to large in size and are irregular in shape with a bulbous, wide bottom that tapers to a smaller rounded neck with a slender, dark brown stem. Similar in appearance to a bartlett pear, the skin transforms from green to pale yellow when ripe and is covered in patches of russeting, prominent lenticels, and small, smooth bumps. The flesh is white to ivory and is fine-grained, moist, and soft encasing a central core with a few, black-brown seeds. When ripe, Packham pears are juicy and creamy with a sweet, aromatic flavor.

Nutrition:

Pears are a very good source of dietary fibre. They are rich in sugars and contain small amounts of phosphorus and vitamins A and C.

Storage:

A pear's window of optimum ripeness is smaller than that of apples. Store at room temperature to accelerate ripening and refrigerate ripe pears or those you won't be using for a few days.

Source:

Local producers. We may also source from other markets in times of high demand.
