Tasting Notes

The “Boy Scout apple”, Empire, is a very popular variety and great for fundraisers. It doesn’t bruise easily making it ideal for school lunches. A cross between a Red Delicious and a McIntosh, the Empire is sweet and crisp and has a bright white flesh. Empires store well but like most of the Mac family they are best right off the tree.
