History and description of Grenadier

English variety of unknown origin. It was first recorded in 1862 and was exhibited in 1863 by the nurseryman Charles Turner of Slough. Awarded a First Class Certificate by the RHS in 1883. It was promoted by the nurseryman George Bunyard of Maidstone and became established as the most widely grown early cooking apple in the UK.

Large, round-conical fruit. Ribbed and often irregular in shape. Pale green skin ripening to pale yellow. White flesh cooking to a sharp, pale cream puree. A good early cooking variety.

Moderately vigorous tree. Heavy cropping. Partially self-fertile and a good pollinator. Very disease resistant but susceptible to capsid bug. Suitable for growing in Northern Britain.
