The Fuji apples are crisp, juicy and sweet. Their flavour is extremely aromatic.
Medium to large in size the thick skin of the Fuji apple is light red with red vertical stripes. Sometimes, there can be a slight glassiness as an indication of high sugar content.
Fuji apple originated in Japan in 1939. It is the successful cross of two American varieties, the Red Delicious and Virginia Ralls Janet. The name of the apple was given as homage to Japan’s most sacred mountain, Mount Fuji.
