Royal™ Empire

Royal™ Empire
(Teeple Cv.)

Discovered at Teeple Farms in Wolcott, New York, Royal® Empire is an early-coloring strain of the original Empire. This selection colors to a deep scarlet red with a faint stripe and matures with Empire. Royal® Empire is equivalent in every aspect to the original Empire, but provides improved coloring. Tree vigor is stronger than other Empire strains, consequently producing a larger count Empire.
