Empire Apple tree 120 cm 3gal


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
