Maloney, Kevin; Reich, Jack; Sanford, John
'Encore' is a new red raspberry developed by Cornell University at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York. 'Encore' is outstanding for its consistent performance over many years of testing. 'Encore' is a late season red raspberry cultivar developed for growers interested in increasing their late season production. Specifically, it has excellent winter hardiness in zone 5, very good plant production and vigor, and commercial yields of large size fruit that peak in production late in the harvest season. 'Encore' is adapted to upick, retail, and wholesale markets. Its firm fruit withstand handling and packing to produce an attractive pack for resale. 'Encore' has potential to become a leading red raspberry cultivar in the East Coast and Great Lakes regions.
