Trees can also be collected direct from Black Barn Farm on Sat 1st August 10am-4.30pm.
All our trees for sale are grafted and grown right here in the Black Barn Farm nursery using absolutely no synthetic fertilisers, herbicides or insecticides. Each and every tree is inoculated with beneficial mycorrhizal fungi, fed specific woodsy composts and well irrigated to ensure you are taking home the healthiest tree and root system possible. All our trees are grafted onto semi-dwarfing disease resistant rootstock, perfect for low maintenance backyard orchards and suitable as a free standing tree 3-5m tall or for espaliering where heights could be kept to 2m with annual pruning. Each tree is sold with a free planting and growing guide.
Rome Beauty - bare rooted
What a little beauty! Despite her good looks she was never raised to become an apple in her own right rather an invisible helper. which came off a rootstock by accident in Ohio, USA.. Her striking beauty attracted attention though and here she is today. Fruits have creamy white, rather coarse-textured, juicy flesh with a mild flavour. A mid sized mid season apple, much used in America for cooking, but pleasant for fresh eating as well. Heavy cropper.
