[NAFEX] Ashmead's Kernel apples are deliciously ugly

That is sad. Ashmead's kernal is my family's favorite apple, and I
make a trek to the one semi-local orchard that sells it each fall.
It's a small ugly apple, but it does taste good. It's an apple for
those of us who like an acidic apple. Lots of acid, lots of sugar,
and a very nice apple flavor. This year it's larger and milder due to
all the rain we had, but in a typical year it can be almost too intense.
eastern MA, zone 6, where Ashmead's Kernal seems to grow with no
problems, although it's a little shy to bear.
