Blakes Pride was named after Dr. Roland Blake, who participated in the USDA pear breeding program at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center from 1967 to 1984.
Blake's Pride is blight-resistant and they don't mind the heat either! "Pears" well with Bartlett, Harrow Delight, and Warren for pollinating. Make sure to harvest in early September with a basket full of goodness!
How to Grow
Plant your Blakes Pride European Pear Tree where it can bask in all-day sun and enjoy moderately rich, well-drained soil at its feet. Avoid low-lying areas, where late frosts can zap the early spring blossoms. You’ll need to have another variety of Pear nearby to pollinate the blooms and enable good fruit set. Irrigate using the Elements™ Watering System and feed your tree with Elements™ Fertilizer to ensure that it gets the right amount of moisture and nutrients when it needs them. Proper maintenance is critical in growing Pears to ensure a healthy harvest!
