Perfect fried apple slices sitting next to a pork chop are probably Romes.
These superb cooking apples retain their shape beautifully as well as their tart flavor.
This old time variety originated in Ohio in 1816 but is widely grown in New York State.
What’s it like?
• Mildy tart
• Firm, greenish white flesh
• Excellent for sauce, baking and pies
• Good for salad and freezing
• Combine Romes with a sweet apple such as Golden Delicous for tasty applesauce.
• October through June
