History: ASHMEAD’S KERNEL 8 L D UK; according to Hogg raised in C18th by physician Dr Ashmead but local historians now believe this to be an error. It is more likely that William Ashmead (d 1782), Clerk of Gloucester City, raised this variety in garden of house, which became Ashmead House, Gloucester. Ronalds records in 1831 that tree was then 100 years’ old. RHS FCC 1981; AGM 1993. Strong, sweet-sharp intense flavour reminiscent of fruit or acid drops and of Nonpareil , but sweeter than its probable parent; firm, white flesh. Long esteemed by connoisseurs; widely planted from mid-C19th and recently regain popularity in England and North America. Grown commercially on small scale in England, but dull colour, poor crops weigh against it.
