Rome Beauty Apple Tree

A favorite for baking

  • Round, red, glossy fruits
  • Develops more flavor when baked
  • Originated in Ohio in early 19th century
Generations of gardeners have treasured Rome Beauty apples for their gorgeous appearance and superior baking qualities. Originating in Ohio in the early 19th century, Rome Beauty Apple Tree produces medium to large, red and glossy apples with a thick skin and firm, greenish-white flesh. The rounded, juicy fruits have a fine texture. Because it is not as sweet as other apple varieties, Rome Beauty is used more for baking than eating fresh. When baked, the fruits develop more flavor and retain their shape. For the best apple production, the tree requires 700 chilling hours below 45°F. The fruits ripen in September-October.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. of Fruit-Boost™ Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties (see video below), a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers.
