Empire was developed at Cornell University in New York state, USA in the 1940s, and its parents are classic old North American varieties - Delicious and McIntosh. These are both shiny red apples. It is an ideal lunch-box apple, not least because it does not bruise easily.
Empire is a sweet apple with a crisp texture and bright white flesh. Although Empire can be stored for a short period, it is best when eaten straight from the tree.
POLLINATION PARTNERS: To ensure good cross pollination, you need to plant Honeycrisp with another apple variety such as:
Royal Gala, Honeycrisp
