Growing Calendar for Peach Tree: Peregrine
Delivery: Despatched from Mid December
Peach Peregrine is an old variety that has been available for over 100 years, it was first introduced in 1906. This variety is still one of the most popular of any white-fleshed peaches.
This variety can be grown in a sheltered position and it grows especially well in the UK, the variety produces heavy crops of delicious, juicy, white fleshed fruits with vibrant sun-ripened crimson skin.
This variety is the most respected of all of the white-flesh peaches. Beautiful early pink blossoms provide an eye-catching display. They make an excellent choice for training against a sunny wall.
Peregrine requires a sunny sheltered area. These trees should be planted 5m apart. They can be grown in a large pot or container but will require annual pruning in order to keep the tree in check.
When the fruits appear on the tree they need to be thinned out, this involves removing poorly placed, small or misshapen fruit when they are just 2cm wide. You should aim to have fruit every 15cm across the branches. The fruits ripen in mid to late August.

In order to ensure a good pollination pick fruit trees from within the same or from adjacent flowering groups.
We may prune your tree before it arrives to your door. We do this to encourage your tree to branch freely which makes them better looking and more productive.
A good shape, but still dormant so unable to comment further.
The ability to arrange an email to advise when back in stock is really useful. It enabled Mt to purchase the tree without having to "chase" stock levels.
