  1. I see the empire apples approximate available date is October 1st, do you have an actual available date for picking empires yet?

    Thank you,

    Took my class there yesterday. Though the weather was cold and yucky the apples were delicious! I am taking my own kids there tomorrow to pick some for the house.

  3. I have been eating Empires for years. I try others and it’s not that I dislike them , it’s just that they aren’t crunchy Empires.
    Going to pick this weekend. Can’t wait.

    Coming up from North Carolina to pick my apples for applesauce! I know people like a mix but Empires are my favorite to work with. Thank you!
