Ashmead’s Kernel

An old English winter russet apple from Gloucester, England, Ashmead’s Kernel has golden-brown skin covering flesh that breaks with a crisp nutty snap.  Exploding with champagne-sherbet juice infused with a lingering scent of orange blossom, the flesh is dense, sugary and aromatic with an unusual intense flavor.  Very limited quantities.

Fresh eating, juice

Late October. Available in the farm store, in season.
