Ashmead’s Kernel Apple Tree


Ashmead’s Kernel apple tree is a small to medium sized apple with yellow and gold colored fruit, and white/pale yellow flesh. It’s great for eating fresh, making juice, hard cider, drying, and making sauce. It has a sweet juicy taste, but is crisp once ripe.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Our grafted/budded apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, and cherry trees are about 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. Most other trees are seedlings ranging from 18-36" tall. You know if a tree is a seedling when the rootstock selected says "Seedling".
