Originating in the 1700's what this apple doesn't have in it's medium-sized, russeted appearance, it makes up for in flavour. This Old World English apple has stuck with us thanks to it's unique flavour - nutty with notes of pear and spice. In cider blends, Ashmead's Kernel mixes well with Cox's Orange Pippin. Like many heritage apples, this apple mellows out nicely in storage, and is perhaps at its peak 2-3 months after picking. Triploid.
