Fuji are all-purpose apples. The skin is a dull, reddish-orange with occasional russetting.

The yellowish-green flesh is dense, crisp, crunchy and very juicy. The flavour is mild, but sweet with a hint of tartness.

Storage Hints

Stores well. Retains flavour well even when stored at room temperature.
