The pounds in a peck would depend on how many pounds Peter Piper picked, when he picked his pickles. Ah, just kidding. A peck can vary, depending on what your peck consists of. Four pecks are equal to 8 dry quarts. It takes 4 pecks to equal a bushel. So, if you have a bushel of apples that weigh 42 lbs., then your peck would be 10 1/2 lbs.
