  Empire is a cross between McIntosh and Red Delicious and takes on the best qualities of both. It is redder and firmer than McIntosh and has a longer storage life. It has a white juicy flesh.  It combines the mild tartness of McIntosh with full-flavored Red Delicious sweetness. It is an improved Macintosh that has a longer shelf life and better flavor. It is excellent for fresh eating, in salads, and for use in baking and cooking.

Golden Delicious

This apple has a firm white flesh and it retains its shape and flavor when baked or cooked.  This is one of the best grown varieties in North Carolina.  Because of our climate this apple gets extremely tasty here.  This apple is hard to beat when eaten right off the tree.  Although, many people prefer tart apples such as Granny Smith, Stayman, and Macintosh for cooking, we prefer this apple because you don't have to use as much sugar in your recipes. This apple is our choice for cooking, eating, drying, and making fried apple pies.
