Not all species of tortoises and turtles are fruit eaters, so only offer this fruit as a small part of the diet once you have checked that your tortoise or turtle is a fruit eater.
Non-fruit-eating species are not equipped to deal with the sugars present in this fruit and can suffer intestinal problems if they eat it. Peach stones contain cyanide and should therefore be avoided.
Although most Peach tree flowers are pink, they can also be found in various shades from white to red.
