If you haven’t decided what variety of pear you want, look carefully at Blake’s Pride European Pear (Pyrus communis ‘Blake’s Pride’) because it’s one of the best for fresh eating and preserves, has high fire blight resistance and is very ornamental!
Producing earlier in the season than most varieties, you won’t have to wait all summer before enjoying these delicious fruits!
You can expect Blake’s Pride to be covered with delicate white blooms in April, attracting bees and butterflies to your yard. The tree is smothered in drifts of white to delight you and your neighbors, long after the threat of frost has passed!
‘Large, sweet, and juicy’ is how most home gardeners describe Blake’s Pride. These pears have a shiny, soft-yellow to russet skin with just a hint of green and that great pear aroma that will delight your nostrils with every bite you take!
Blake’s Pride will need another variety for pollination so be sure to plant with another European Pear. If you don’t have room for two trees, try this high-density planting trick found in Nature Hills Garden Blog.
How to Use Blake’s Pride European Pear Tree In The LandscapeThis variety winters well and produces beautiful dark-green foliage for you to enjoy from spring till fall. And best of all, it will start producing a good crop by its second or third year!
Early producing, disease resistant and smaller size – all make this tree perfect for home orchards and gardeners with properties of all sizes. Prune smaller as needed for easy harvest or to control the size.
An outstanding specimen tree, the white blooms will highlight your spring, plus the handsome foliage creates great shade. Add to front and side gardens as an accent or anchor to your garden beds.
Shade seating areas and patios in the lush shade. Park a chair or blanket beneath the limbs to enjoy the blooms and later to pluck a few fresh snacks! Plant a hedgerow for privacy and property definition that also fills your pantry in luscious fruit.
#ProPlantTips For CareLike most varieties, Blake’s Pride Pear is the most productive when planted in full sun and well-drained soil. Young trees require continuous moisture access during the first year, while mature trees just need a little extra water during hot and dry weather.
Plant in well-enriched soil that drains fast, plus top-dress with a thick layer of mulch over the surface for more moisture retention and to further insulate the roots from heat and cold. Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.
This Pear grows vigorously to an average height. It reliably provides a heavy crop that resists fire blight along with diseases that might affect other Pear varieties.
Prune to keep an open canopy so that both sunlight and airflow can reach the interior. Head over to our Garden Blog for more Fruit Tree Planting, Fruit Tree Pruning and Fruit Tree Care tips and tricks can be found!
