This upright tree bears ample yields of medium-sized fruit with juicy, aromatic flesh and a smooth texture— similar to Bartlett but with more depth of flavor. The skin is shiny yellow with a russet overlay, which aids in its disease resistance.
Blake’s Pride keeps well and is a fine choice for canning, desserts, pear butter and of course, fresh-eating. Heat-tolerant and resistant to fire blight. Originates in Ohio, introduced in 1998. Ripens in early September.
Pollinator required: Choose Bartlett, Seckel or Beurre Bosc.
