Apple trees

Does anyone with green fingers know about duo fruit trees?
I was wondering if they self pollinate or do I buy two?
I am looking at a duo tree with Bramley and Braeburn apples on it. One is a cooking apple the other is an eating apple, as best as I can tell.
At £9 I don't mind buying two if needed but I have limited space free and this would limit the option for me to get another type of fruiting tree.
Here is the tree:

Hello there!
I am in gardening since few years but I have never heard about duo fruit trees! A few minutes ago I searched Internet to find some information about them. It is amazing way for people with small gardens, but I am not sure if it really works. I saw that you can buy them on yougarden for 20$  (potted tree is on sale now so hurry up). If you will get it I am curious of results!

RE: Apple trees

I believe you can buy apple rootstock with as many, as a dozen varieties of apples grafted on to it - must make pruning a bit of a nightmare!
