About

Packham pears are an Australian variety of the European Pyrus communis.

Medium to large in size, its white flesh is firm but juicy and rich in flavour. When ripe, the colour mellows to a lighter shade of green.

Deliciously juicy, with a gentle sweetness, these are the perfect all rounder pear.

Bright green skin ripens to a light  yellow when fully ripe.

They can last for up to a week in the refrigerator, or 3-5 days in a cool dry spot.
