Originating on the northern bank of the Ohio River in a town called Rome. It appeared from a sucker below the graft of an orchard tree. It's a large brilliant red fruit that resists bruising and is a heavy cropper. Good eating and becomes very sweet. Can tolerate a low chill environment.
As we grow it on other rootstocks, be sure that you want it as a Step-over.
