First recorded in 1862, Grenadier is still one of the best cooking apples. The large green apples have a cook sharp flavour and the crisp white flesh cooks down to a fluffy puree.
It’s a heavy cropper, ripening its first fruit in August, and keeping well for 2-3 months. A very hardy tree, with good resistance to scab, it has a relatively compact shape which makes it suitable for smaller gardens. Although it is self fertile, it bears a heavier crop if there is another pollinator nearby
