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.

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.
