Harvest done - Enterprise apple
I try to leave the Enterprise on the tree till frost, but the squirrels were eying it now that all the other fruit was picked. They'll gnaw through the bags.
But it at least was October and the fruit said it was ready to be picked. There weren't many apples - all the apples have been sparse this year. But the ones I did get are definitely the best Enterprise I've had yet. Most were HUGE apples, very crisp and hard - that's per usual. There was real sweetness in them, and the skins weren't so tough and disagreeable as they've been in the past. They have a bloom on them like plums. I wonder if that's from the bagging, though I've never seen it on other bagged apples.
So I'm beginning to be glad I planted this one. They'll keep after the early apples have gone mushy.
Still looking forward to when the Fuji starts bearing, though.
