Also known as Packham’s Triumph or Autumn Bartlett, they are a cross between two English pears: a Bartlett, and an Uvedale St. Germain pear. A bulbous, wide-bottomed pear, the Packham pear has a look similar to a Bartlett, with green skin that ripens to a light yellow. Packham pears have a sweet and juicy white flesh with a smooth texture, and are a versatile fruit that can be used in a variety of applications from fresh eating to cooking. Pair sliced Packham pears with arugula and sliced brie, or serve with a variety of cheeses on a platter. Sautee sliced Packham pears with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon or poach whole with red wine and a cinnamon stick. Stuff pork tenderloin with diced Packham pears, walnuts and blue cheese.
