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: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
