Apple Ashmead’s Kernal is a much-loved heritage variety dating back to the 1700s.

Ashmead’s Kernal has a unique flavour, some say it’s reminiscent of pear drops, taking you back down memory lane to the sweet shop round the corner.

We recommend that you prune out the stems that are growing into the centre of the tree in mid-winter. At this point prune out dead, diseased or damaged branches too.

Rootstock: M26

Height at full growth: 3m/10ft

Most of our trees are delivered as bare rooted specimens with approximate height of: 3.5ft - 5ft / 105cm - 140cm depending on the variety.

In order to ensure a good pollination pick fruit trees from within the same or from adjacent flowering groups.

We may prune your tree before it arrives to your door. We do this to encourage your tree to branch freely which makes them better looking and more productive.
