If you are in Maine, I'm not sure that my experience with Enterprise will be of any value to you. FWIW, though, Enterprise on M26 is an early cropper (2nd year for me), good tasting with good size. The only problem I had with it was that the birds and squirrels also loved the fruit and so my share of the crop was always significantly reduced compared to what the tree made. Very wide crotch angles and healthy. I got many complements on my first tree that was growing in a suburban setting.

>Curious to see if it lives up to it's claims.
>PS The Caroline raspberry (5 plants) set an impressive crop in zone 4 Maine. A lot of big, good-tasting berries.
> The Polanas (5) did OK; ripened 2 weeks before Caroline, still picking, almost done.
>PPS Another plug for Miller's Big Blue plum. 120 plums off one small tree. Loaded. Good fruit.
> Festooning it for one year really seemed to help.
