Ashmead's Kernel Apple
The incredible sweet-tart flavor of this superb heirloom apple has made it a connoisseur's favorite. Discovered in Gloucester about 1750, scab resistant trees are easy to grow and are grown commercially in England today. The medium size fruit with brown russetting keeps extremely well.
This variety is a triploid and is pollen sterile. It will not pollinize other varieties.
