Owner's comments

When this tree is listed as scab immune, believe it! Fantastic beautiful apples! I have another Enterprise that is at least 12 years old, it gives a reliable crop every year, even summer of 2010 when none of the other apples had ANY fruit. Apples keep very well, but I prefer them fresh. Skin gets waxy in storage and they make excellent pies for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have never sprayed this tree with dormant, herb or pest products and it just keeps performing.
