Grenadier is self-fertile. It will therefore produce some fruit if planted by itself, but will yield more in the company of a pollinating partner.Grenadier is also quite an easy apple tree to grow in the garden, being reliable, resistant to the common apple diseases, and not likely to grow as vigorously as a Bramley.
It is partially self-fertile.
