Packham Pears generally have a short stout shape with an irregular or bumpy surface. The pale yellow outer skin conceals the sweet juicy flesh underneath. The texture of the flesh on a Packham Pear is firm, but softens on ripening. It is a variety that is a pear crossed between a Yvedale Saint-Germain and a Bartlett pear. These refreshing fruits are a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron.
