Empire Apples

A cross between the varieties Red Delicious and McIntosh

Bi-colored with a deep red cheek and a very crisp, juicy flesh.

A wonderful blend of sweet and tart. Excellent for snacking.

Good for sauce, baking, pies and freezing.

Terrific for school lunches, as it will not bruise easily.

Available in late September-early October

 

Red Delicious

Named when a nurseryman in 1894 exclaimed “My, that’s delicious!”

Bright red fruit with a creamy flesh.

Sweet and juicy, especially when picked ripe from the tree.

Excellent for eating and salads.

Red Delicious apples look great for a long time, so they are an ideal choice for holiday centerpieces and wreaths.
