With the popular Red Delicious and McIntosh for parents, Empire apples were destined to be a hit.

It's a sweet-tart combination that's great for everything. 

The New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva introduced this new variety in 1966.

What’s it like?

• A wonderful blend of sweet and tart

• Juicy

• Very crisp, creamy white flesh

Best uses:

• Excellent for eating and salads

• Good for sauce, baking, pies and freezing

Special Hint:

• Small empires are great for school lunches. Kids love Empire's sweet-tart and super crunchy texture.


• September through August
