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.
Important note on size. All my stepovers didnt make sufficient growth, and as such are sold as "small". In the paddock most got up to mid thigh (when in leaf!) and should do just fine. They've been discounted accordingly.
As we grow it on other rootstocks, be sure that you want it as a Step-over.
