Flavor, Texture, Usage
Rome apples are quite large, a deep red, and are known for their long storage capability. Just picked, Rome's flavor is semi-tart, but is enhanced when cooked or sauteed, which makes Rome a good candidate for cooking and baking. The pale, firm flesh makes this apple a favorite, whether eaten fresh or baked in a pie!
This apple should be available for sale in mid October.
The Rome apple was introduced in Rome Township, Ohio in the mid 1800s.
