Peach Tree

  • Common Name: Peach Tree
  • Latin Name: Prunus persica
  • Family Name: Rosaceae
Failing to pick up all the blossom from Peach trees will do no harm during the short season they are on the ground but don't offer as extra.

The stones from the Peach fruit contain cyanide and should be avoided.

The leaves, as they get older and wilt, produce a cyanic compound, so although your tortoise will come to no harm if he accidentally nibbles a few fallen leaves, it is wise to prevent him from doing so if possible. 

Although most Peach tree flowers are pink, they can also be found in various shades from white to red.
