Enterprise apple tree

Enterprise

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.
