Multi-purpose apple with disease resistance.
Martin R on Jun 6, 2016
Disease resistant! I don't have a lot of time to "care" for my apple trees, and so I needed one that would pretty much grow on its own. I love that my kids can enjoy the apples without the use of pesticides and other sprays! Great tree. Thank you!

I won't be around forever , but I'd like to know if this tree will grow, even without sprays, after I'm gone :-)

Does well in our community orchard -- particularly due to CAR resistance.
Sarah R on Apr 5, 2016
My boyfriend has an enterprise here in southwest Ohio. It produced a ton of apples last year. I processed a couple of bushel baskets of them into apple butter and apple sauce and did not see a single worm. He never uses any chemicals on this tree. They are completely organic. And, they are very tasty.

I see that a Starkcrimson Gala will pollinate this variety. Will a Grand Gala work, as well?
Brett B on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry! Yes, the Stark GrandGala will also pollinate with the Enterprise Apple.
Is this variety best eaten fresh or is it also good baked or in pies?
Karen H on Mar 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I consider this apple an important ingredient for my mixture of Liberty, Enterprise
and unknown heirloom varieties grown before my ownership of my home orchard. The mixture of varieties makes a sweet, crisp apple juice and apple pies every year with little maintenance needed for blight control.

The most disease resistant
In November 2010, I planted 20 apple trees from Stark, 4 each of the Gala, Red Fuji, Grand Gala, Enterprise, and Empire varieties. The Enterprise has been the most disease resistant and requires the least amount of care. The Empire is also been very disease resistant and has been a heavy producer. The Grand Gala is delicious, but along with the Gala, subject to fire blight and requires more care.

Healthy tree
This tree hasn't produced any fruit yet, but its health is very good in spite of the lack of rain and heat. I water my trees every other day.

Slow growing
I purchased the Enterprise because it is resistant to cedar apple rust. I purchased the tree after going to a local orchard that already had them growing to ask questions and sample some apples. This orchard has 25 acres of enterprise because of the same issues I had with cedar apple rust on their yellow delicious.

This tree seems to grow alot slower than my others. I also grow yellow delicious, empire, johnathon and honey crisp. At the rate it's growing I don't expect to get any amount of apples for another 4 years. I planted this tree 2 years ago and it won't produce it's first apple until next year, if I even choose to allow that to happen. I want the tree to grow to a decent size before producing fruit.
