Rome Beauty Step-Over View larger

Rome Beauty Step-Over

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.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
