Let me suggest the acidic cooking "Grenadier " and the tasty eater "Discovery"
Discovery has the added bonus of being resistant to scab, a harmless enough surface blemish, but one which turns a lot of people off apples.
Seek these out on a MM106 rootstock, which will cause the trees to grow to an eventual height and spread of 4 metres.
