Prunus tenella

Prunus persica Siberian C

Russian Almond
Siberian C Peach

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets attracts wildlife. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. They are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

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.
