Season: 
late September into November
Quality: 
thick-skinned, mildly tart and crisp
Use:

Good keeper, fair for fresh-eating and reliable in the kitchen, Rome is one of those varieties that owes its popularity more for its looks than its taste. This variety still looks good long after its prime, so watch for out of season Romes and avoid them, as they have often turned mealy.

yes
