Peach ‘Peregrine’ is the most revered of all the white-flesh peaches. In March, early pink blossoms provide eye-catching displays, followed by red flushed white skinned fruits. Hardy, deciduous, reliable and prolific. Makes an excellent choice for training against a sunny wall.
Needs a sunny sheltered spot. Ideally, plant 5m (16ft) apart, they can also be kept in a pot or container but will require annual pruning to keep them in check. When the fruits appear, they will need to be thinned. This involves removing poorly placed, small or misshapen fruits when they are around 2cm wide. Aim to have a fruit every 15cm. Self-fertile, the fruits ripen mid to late August.
