Enterprise apples are firm and crisp, with a delightful balance of spiciness and tartness. These apples are great for baking and making cider, and you can store them in the fridge for up to six months! This cold-hardy cultivar ripens in October. It’s highly resistant to apple scab, cedar apple rust, and fire blight, moderately resistant to powdery mildew, and requires only 400 chill hours. Don’t forget to pick a pollinator buddy!
