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