About the Ashmead’s Kernel apple

As a small, misshapen green apple discovered in 1700’s England, Ashmead’s Kernels are not especially attractive. Yet appearances can be deceiving, this variety has remained popular for well over 2 centuries. It has a distinctive flavor which is quite different from most other varieties. Ashmead’s Kernel is a versatile apple, not just for eating fresh, but also for salads and cooking, and it is a highly-valued apple for juicing and hard cider.
