Nearly two centuries ago on the banks of the Ohio River, an apple tree planted in Rome, Ohio, sent up a shoot from below the graft, the part of the tree that is not supposed to bear fruit. Orchardists generally lop these unwanted shoots off, but this branch survived to bear beautiful red fruit. That chance seedling produced what we now know as the Rome or Rome Beauty and it is famed for its deep red color and excellent storage qualities. The Rome’s flesh is crisp, firm and a greenish-white, and it has a thick skin which makes it perfect as a baking apple, a pie apple (if blended with other apples) and in cider. Rome’s are particularly flavorful in this recipe for New England Apple Cake. Scatter a few raisins, dried apricots or cranberries on top for a different taste.
