The apple varieties listed below are orchard favorites and highly recommended for fresh eating. Many of these varieties also make fantastic cider due to their high sugar content and ample acidity. I've highlighted a few standouts in the "Also Cider!" section.

I offer one hint as you go about your selection: Hone in on the 'ugly' apples. How did such unremarkable fruits find hospitable homes for centuries without fail? Flavor, my friend, flavor.

Ashmead's Kernel

Product Details

Unknown parentage, William Ashmead's Garden, Gloucester, UK, early 1700s

Behold the power of a chance seedling. There's something pure and beautiful about eating an apple to its core, removing its seeds, and then nurturing that seedling to fruition like William Ashmead did.

I love the taste of Ashmead's Kernel apples. I love them straight from the tree when they're incredibly sweet and sour, and I love them after weeks in storage when their acidity has mellowed enough to let its sweetness and bouqet shine.

Ashmead's Kernel apples have a top-notch texture to match its top-notch flavor. Its flesh dispenses from the core in satisfying hunks that are crunchy, crispy, and very juicy.

As a triploid variety, Ashmead Kernel trees are vigorous and will not pollinate other varieties.
