Crown Empire

Description A red blush sport discovered at Crist Brothers Orchard, Walden, NY in 1990. Exhibits full red color two weeks ahead of Empire. Very productive and a better annual bearer than other blush strains observed. Trees are somewhat less vigorous than Empire producing a slightly smaller tree. We feel this strain is worthy of planting and will set new standards for the Empire market.
