Terute-beni is listed in the RHS Plants for Pollinators

Terute-beni (also known as Terute Red) is an unusual ornamental flowering peach.  The main attraction of this tree is the stunning deep dusky red semi-double blossom, usually arriving in early spring in the UK.

Terute-beni grows with a compact upright form. It can be grown alongside its sister trees, since they all have a similar form, but different blossom colours.

Although grown purely for its ornamental appeal, Terute-beni will sometimes produce a small crop of small peaches.

Terute-beni is a good choice if you are looking for a flowering cherry but would like to try something different (and with a darker red blossom).
