Malus ‘Encore ’ (Cooking apple). This is a large cooking apple. Fruits are very acid when used early on, but they mellow into good baking apples in storage.
Encore is self-sterile and would require a pollinator to produce a crop. The tree is of moderate vigour, is a good cropper and is scab resistant. Height and spread dependent on rootstock.
