Facts About the York Imperial Apple
The ‘York Imperial’ is one of the few apple cultivars to have survived for 180 years. It is still commonly grown in orchards and backyards in the continental United States, especially Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina. It is consistently one of the top-ten-selling apple varieties and is easily identified by its lopsided shape. The skins are deep red with greenish-yellow streaks and specks; it has a tart yet sweet taste, sweetinging in flavor for 5–6 months after it is picked. The York Imperial is excellent for baking, cooking, apple sauce, cider, preserves, jams, dried apple slices, and juice, as well as eating fresh.
