Prunus persica
Terute-momo is listed in the RHS Plants for Pollinators

Terute-shiro (also known as Terute White) is an unusual ornamental flowering peach.  While fruiting peach trees always have deep red blossom, Terute-shiro has solid white semi-double blossom

It flowers in early spring - late February or early March.

Terute-shiro 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-shiro may sometimes produce a small crop of small peaches.

    Sorry we have not produced any trees of this variety this season.


    Although relatively unknown in Western Europe, in China and Japan flowering peach trees have been popular for thousands of years.

    Terutemomo is the result of a cross between two other ornamental peach varieties, Houki Momo, an upright variety with pale pink flowers, and Akashidare, a weeping form with darker pink flowers. It was developed in Japan in the 1980s.
