Project TitleRed Raspberry 'Encore'
Track Code2255
Short Description

'Encore' is highly productive with conically shaped fruit, well-balanced flavor, and excellent firmness.

Abstract

The 'Encore' red raspberry cultivar matures a high percentage of its fruit from late July to early August, which decreases the gap between the summer and fall harvest seasons. In addition to its unique fruiting period, 'Encore' offers consistent large fruit size throughout the entire harvest season. 'Encore' is highly productive with conically shaped fruit, well-balanced flavor, and excellent firmness. 'Encore' has moderate tolerance to Phytophthora root rot and its firm fruit are able to withstand handling and packing to produce an attractive pack for resale. The 'Encore' variety is adapted to U-Pick, retail, and wholesale markets. 'Encore' has potential to become a leading red raspberry cultivar in the East Coast and Great Lakes regions.
