Enterprise is a good modern disease-resistant apple, sweet enough for eating fresh but with a tartness that lends itself to cooking as well.

Like most disease-resistant apples, Enterprise has a complex parentage. Visually it resembles its grand-parent, McIntosh but the flavor is perhaps more similar to another relative, Rome Beauty. Golden Delicious is also part of the mix, and lends its excellent keeping qualities and crispness.

How to grow

Enterprise has quickly established itself as a good garden apple variety, with excellent resistance to scab, fireblight, and mildew.
