Back in the 20th century Rome apples, which originated in southern Ohio early in the nineteenth were sometimes labeled as "Queen of the Baking Apples!"

Watch "Apple Berry Crisp" Video.
One of the better keeping varieties which we grow, Rome Beauty is a firm apple with a mild flavor (you and yours may agree with this consumer's assessment!) and is especially good, yes indeed, for all baking and cooking purposes. In fact, even now in the 21st century, this is the variety we at the Fruit Farm use most often when peeling and coring apples for bakeries and restaurants and, of course, to produce our All Natural Dried Apple Schnitz.

Do you ever find yourself looking for quick, comfort-food type dishes for healthy snacks or side dishes? We here at the apple orchard think that using Rome Beauty apples (as the recipe suggests) in a culinary classic dish such as this (complete with cinnamon, of course) would meet the above qualifications admirably!

You may wish to click here to peruse an interesting article that details the origins and history of this native and GMO-free American variety. In response to the article, Steve and Annie Lenington wrote: "Thanks for this! Rome Beauties have always been my favorites. Dad used to buy them at Christmas time when I was a child and polish them up for me (because you couldn't get unwaxed apples in those days except at farmstands and there were none of those in New York City). Mom also put them in our holiday fruit salads. I found they were also firm enough to bake in pies, but so much sweeter than cooking apples or Granny Smiths." (Emphasis added)

Speaking (once again) of Baked Apples: this discerning consumer (who supplies a mighty fine recipe for folks like you) seems to think that Rome Beauty is really (almost!) the only variety worth mentioning.

More great choices similar to Rome Beauty which we grow here in our Bird-in-Hand orchards include Cortland and Stayman.

For your info!!! There is no known need for apple lovers to drive anywhere to purchase premium fresh fruit anymore! You can, most easily and quickly, order one (or more) fruit boxes, packed chock full of fruit that's pretty, juicy, tasty, and good for your health.

These Rome Beauty apples will arrive all boxed up into sturdy cartons that are liberally lined with high-density foam cushioning. Each piece of fruit occupies its own foam slot for maximum protection, and we carefully pack the box apples of highest quality. However, we have no control over distance, storage, temperature, or handling during transit, so if the fruit arrives overripe or spoiled, we most likely will not offer a refund, although you're welcome to contact us about it. We offer 2nd Business Day and Next Business Day shipping for those customers who'd like to take an extra step to protect the fruit during shipping. This item is not available for sale in or to California, Oregon, and Washington.
