Grenadier

Grenadier

Grenadier

No relation to Golden Delicious, but equally reliable from the cropping point of view. It is a good cooking apple to be used early in the season. Very resistant to fungal diseases, and a good pollinator for the later ripening Bramley’s Seedling. It likes an open structure tree form as its leaf canopy is very dense. Like all early apples it has a short shelf life. Can be grown throughout the UK.
