The Ashmead’s Kernel apple has been described as unattractive, often being misshapen and a little dumpy with a dullish russet color. However, its taste has remained a solid choice for over three centuries with an undefinable flavor which has been compared to tasting slightly like pears. It originated in Gloucester, England in the 1700s and was brought to the new world by early pioneers. It is a good eating apple, makes good cider and good sauce, making it a favorite for its multiple uses. Its high acid content allows it to store well and after several weeks or even months, its flavor turns sweeter, making it more of a dessert apple.
