Blakeney Red is a heritage perry pear from the English county of Herefordshire. The juice contains medium tannins and some acidity.

Blakeney Red is one of the most reliable and heavy-cropping perry pear varieties, and was traditionally used to provide the bulk of juice needed for perry production, with other less productive varieties added to the blend to achieve the required flavor.

History

Herefordshire or Gloucestershire, England, 19th century.
