The Ashmead's Kernel Organic Heirloom Apple, Malus domestica 'Ashmead's Kernel', produces apples that offer a sweet-tart flavor and the more golden in color, the better the flavor. Its appearances can be deceiving since Ashmead's Kernel is lumpy, misshapen, and rather small, but has remained popular for well over 2 centuries, and with good reason: it has a distinctive flavor that you will rave about because it is quite different from most other varieties. This dessert apple is outstandingly rich and tart, flattish in shape, about the size of a Gala or Jonathan, and half-russetted over gold. The apple sweetens as it stores and stores successfully for up to twelve months. The fruit is generally picked in October for use between December and February. It makes a good apple juice or applesauce because of its sweet sharp flavor. It is a late season pollinator which means it is not self-fertile but it can pollinate other apple trees. It is a small to medium sized apple and sometimes lopsided or flattish-round in shape; its flesh is creamy, yellow and fragrant.
