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.

History Notes

Developed at Tohoku Horticultural Research Station, Nakahara, Japan in 1939 by H. Niitsu from a cross between Ralls and Red Delicious. Named "Fuji" in 1962.
