Ashmead’s Kernel – England early 1700’s

Ashmead’s Kernel originated in England in the early 1700’s and has since been known as one of the best fresh eating apples of all-time!  Don’t let this variety’s russeting or lop-sided shape deter you, because inside you will find creamy, yellow flesh that is fine-grained, crisp, and has a distinct pear-like taste.  Although Ashmead’s Kernel can be used for cooking and baking, it is most often used for fresh eating and juice or cider.
