The Empire apple was developed by Cornell University scientists in 1966 at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva as a cross between Red Delicious and McIntosh. Empire apples have a sweet-tart taste that is ideal for eating and salads but also great for sauce, baking, pies and freezing. Stored correctly, they have a crunchy texture people love.
