15 September

Not every apple is so lucky as to have its own official birthday, but this one does.

The Empire Apple apple was developed in New York State (the "Empire" State) at Cornell's Experimental Station in Geneva, NY over two decades of selective breeding.

It was released to public on 15 September 1966 by "pomologist" Roger D. Way.
