Blake's Pride or Gem Pears
These are golden-yellow pears with attractive russet speckling. The juicy flesh has a smooth, buttery texture. In terms of flavor and aroma, Blake's is an excellent, sweet eating pear, more comparable to Comice than Bartlett. Slice and add to a salad with dried cranberries and arugula; cube and cook into a blue cheese and walnut sauce; bake a delicious tart.
