Encore apple


A variety of cooking apple raised by Charles Ross at Welford Park, Newbury in Buckinghamshire and recorded since 1906. It was awarded the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Merit in 1906 and is probably as a cross between Warner's King and Northern Greening. In 1908 it received the Royal Horticultural Society First Class Certificate. It retains its shape on cooking. This late-season variety is harvested from early- to mid-October in South-East England and is at its best from December to April.
