Pear 'Packham's Triumph'

An Australian heirloom originating in NSW in 1896, 'Packhams Triumph' is Australia's best known and most popular pear variety.

How to grow

Pears grow in a wide variety of soils, but do best in a soil enriched with decomposed compost and well-rotted manure prior to planting. Their main requirements are full sun, cool winters (600 chilling hours) and regular irrigation. Flowering a month earlier than apples, protect from frost to improve fruiting. Always plant more than one type for cross-pollination.
