description for "Apples: Malus domestica 'Empire'"

Semi-dwarf 'Empire' can be planted farther South than 'McIntosh,' and you can expect them to color up better. 'Empire' has the sweetness of 'Delicious' combined with the full flavor or 'McIntosh.' A highly productive, easy to train tree that resists fire blight and rust. Pollinate with 'Starkspur EarliBlaze' or 'Starkrimson Red Delicious.' Ripens mid-September in Zone 5. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
