Peregrine Peach Tree
Still the most revered of all white-fleshed peaches. Peregrine (Prunus 'Peregrine') in an old English peach variety, first introduced in 1906. It has an intense flavour and is very rich. Peregrine is a heavy cropping variety and suitable for sheltered positions. A free of stone variety.
Time of Picking: Early August
Self-fertile/Not Self-Fertile: Peregrine is a self-fertile peach and will provide peaches without the need of another peach tree nearby.
This tree is available on a Semi-Vigorous St Julien Rootstock or Peach Seedling meaning the tree will reach an ultimate height of around 3.6 metres.
Peregrine is supplied in a container which means it can be planted at any time of year, not forgetting that regular watering is a pre-requisite, especially in dry and warm/hot weather. Our nectarine trees are grown in the UK so they are well-suited to UK climatic conditions.
We will include a message card included at no additional cost if required.

Fruit Tree Life Expectancy
Most fruit trees will give you AT LEAST 40 years of fruit. Pears can go to 70. Records of 200 year old trees exist but this is the exception, not the rule.
Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Fruit Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Fruit Tree Heights
Taller does not mean more value for money. A 1 year old fruit tree can easily be substantially higher than a 2 year old, this is because they are hard pruned at 1 year old to create the desired shape. Some trees have over 100cm of height removed. They can then have another pruning at 2 years old to increase fruit growing real estate. Most fruit trees will benefit from having a third to half of the seasons new growth cut back in the Autumn to prevent long whippy branches which break easily. Age and pruning completed determine real value.
Important Peach Fruit Tree information
All our garden Peach fruit trees are carefully nursery grown in pots and containers which means you can PLANT THEM ALL YEAR ROUND. Unfortunately all Peach trees do not winter (Oct-Mar) very well if left outside in their pots. We advise planting Peach fruit trees directly into the soil OR keeping them in a heated conservatory or greenhouse during the winter period if you want to keep them in containers.
