Common Snowberry vs Siberian C Peach

Symphoricarpos albus

Prunus persica Siberian C

Common Snowberry
Siberian C Peach

Common Snowberry is a small deciduous shrub with characteristic white to pink flowers and clusters of white fruit.

This North American native species is very adaptable, and can be used for erosion control in riparian and restoration areas. Snowberry's fruit attracts wildlife, and livestock can consume the berries without issue.

Note: This difficult to grow species is not regularly scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. If there aren't seedlings available for purchase, try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.

The Siberian C Peach is a cold hardy peach cultivar, and the fruit is great for producing juice and fresh eating. This variety is native to the Gobi desert area of China, and is relatively true to seed. In colder climates they might not grow fruit reliably as they require a relatively hot summer for the fruit to produce.

Unlike most peach trees the Siberian C Peach doesn’t require thinning and is quite productive. The fruit are firm enough to handle mechanical harvesting.

While it is possible to graft other peach varieties to the Siberian C Peach, research has shown that the Chui Lum Tao Peach and Tzim Pee Tao Peach are better candidates for rootstock.
