Description:This image depicts a single, bright red Rome Beauty apple. Its skin was covered by a fine layer of condensed water droplets.

A baker's dream, but also a great eating apple, this variety displays smooth, blazingly bright red skin with sweet, slightly juicy flesh. Primarily used as cooking apples, the Rome Beauty’s flavor intensifies, and becomes richer when baked or sauteed.
The apple can be traced back to the Romans and Egyptians who introduced them to Britain and finally to America. Today, Americans eat about 120 apples apiece each year. At least 50% of the domestic crop is used in items we use every day such as, applesauce, juice, jellies, pies and other popular desserts. (Wellness Encyclopedia of Food and Nutrition, 1992).
