    One of the best peaches for growing in the UK, 'Peregrine' produces a heavy and reliable crop of red-flushed fruits that are usually ready to harvest from early August. Their white flesh has a rich and delicious flavour, and it comes away easily from the stone. The deep pink flowers that preceed the fruits, put on a great display in spring and make this a fine ornamental as well as productive plant. Discovered at the Rivers Orchard in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire in 1906 - and still in demand today.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker.
