Apple Tree – Grenadier (Bare Rooted)


An early season cooking apple
This is the one to grow if you’re keen to cook up crumbles, pies or make jams. It’s a variety we love for its flavour and texture when cooked, and for being easy to grow and resistant to disease. Whilst it does not store well, you can pick your apples over several weeks from mid-August through to late September/early October and cook them down (freeze after cooking if necessary).

Number of plants: 1 bare rooted tree for winter planting (approx 1.5m tall)
Variety: Grenadier (cooking apple)
Position: Full sun, well draining soil
In the kitchen: This variety is best used for cooking within 1 week of picking, and makes excellent jam.

Pruning & Growing Information
(for Novice Fruit Growers)

This apple tree will benefit from a little pruning in winter (not obligatory) – a growing guide will be provided with your delivery. It is best planted into the ground but you could plant into a large container as well.

You will get a better crop by planting another apple tree from our range nearby, for cross-pollination, but it can be grown alone.
