an albino form but with fringed flowers. The flower is a unique pure white without any pigment, which makes it a form of albinism specific to the flower. Normal whites have the fuchsia-pigmented corollary ring in the blossom throat and a fuchsia-red or magenta pistil and stigma. Low temperatures do not affect the white color of the flower.

SRL RegistrationThis sport emerged in 2006 in Osasco, São Paulo, Brazil. Mr. Hélio Toyohiro Shinkawa, a producer of Schlumbergera, found this sport among one of his white flowering plants. He selected cuttings, and began to produce plants with white fringed flowers, which he called peaked white. The plant can still produce some white flowers without fringes.
