Peregrine Peach

Description: Peregrine is still the most revered of all white fleshed peaches in the UK. Heavy, regular crops of white skinned flushed red fruits. It is of the finest flavour, intense and rich. The flesh peels away from the stone easily, freestone. Beautiful dark pink blossoms early in the spring which also make it an attractive ornamental tree. Well suited to the UK climate.

History: Discovered at the Rivers of Sawbridgeworth in Hertfordshire in 1906. Recieved an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.

Peach Growing Tips: Suited to well-drained and moderately fertile soils in a full sun position. Fan training on a sheltered wall (except north facing) is recommended to avoid leaf curl. Picking times relate to growing under glass, therefore if planting outside at least two weeks need to be added. Early flowering outside makes these trees prone to frost damage. Fruit is best picked when still firm to final ripening indoors.
