Product Information

Easily one of the best peaches that can be grown in the UK, ‘Peregrine’ is robust and hardy, producing plenty of delicious fruit, fresh from your own garden.

Fragrant, deep pink spring flowers are followed by large, crimson flushed orange and yellow peaches that have wonderfully juicy, white flesh. Ready to pick from August, ‘Peregrine’ produces a prolific crop and as it’s self-fertile, there’s no need for a pollinating partner.

The flesh comes away from the stone easily, making this a perfect peach for eating straight from the tree, where its outstanding juiciness will make your mouth water. It’s also excellent for making jam or in pies, tarts and crumbles or for drying.

Grown on dwarfing rootstock, ‘Peregrine’ is a deciduous tree, happy growing in the ground in full sun, sheltered from cold winds. It also looks fantastic in a pot and makes a great ornamental tree. Hardy, slow growing and easy to care for, you just need to provide protection from late frosts that could damage the blossom by covering with fleece.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, and pick delicious peaches for years to come. ‘Peregrine’ is also recommended by the RHS as a ‘Plant for Pollinators’, with its flowers providing a valuable early food source for bees and butterflies as they emerge after the winter.

Plant Care Information

Top Tips

  • For bigger crops, use an artist's soft paintbrush to transfer pollen from flower to flower to increase pollination.

Care Information

  • Plant in full sun, away from cold winds.
  • Although frost-tolerant, it is still best practice to protect the blossom with fleece.
  • When fruit appears, it may need thinning. Remove poorly placed, small or misshapen fruits when they are about the width of your little fingernail. With aiming to have a fruit every 15cm (6in).
  • Water container-grown trees almost every day during the growing season and give them a high potash liquid feed every couple of weeks.
  • Avoid excessive or irregular watering when fruit is ripening to prevent the skin splitting.
  • Prune in early spring, just before growth starts, removing unwanted or damaged branches.
