Rome Beauty Apple

Everyone, it seems, is looking to grow their own produce, and even better when it comes with an interesting history. Take apples for example. The apple tree was perhaps the earliest tree to be cultivated. Originating in Central Asia, apples have been grown for thousands of years. In fact Alexander the Great is credited with finding dwarfed apples in Kazakhstan in 328 BC.

If you like apples with history then Rome Beauty is for you. Introduced in the USA in 1816, Rome Beauty produces the same glossy red, Sharp, Sweet and Aromatic flavoured fruit it did over 200 years ago. An ideal cooking and drying apple, Rome Beauty is a late season producer that does extremely well in warm climates.

To pick up this plant and loads of other great garden performers, simply drop into The Diggers Garden Shop in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
