Fresh Fuji Apples

Fuji apples were developed in the late 1930s by growers at the Tohoku Research Station in Morioka, Japan. Fuji apples are a cross between two classic American apple varieties - Red Delicious and Virginia Ralls Janet. This variety is often misspelled as Fugi apples.

The Fuji apple variety was introduced to the United States in the 1960s. Fans of sweet apples adore Fuji because with 15-18% Brix, or sugar levels, it is the sweetest apple around! Fuji apples are also great storing apples, and because of that, are available year-round!

Characteristics

Exterior: Reddish stripes and slight red blush over yellow background color
Interior: Firm, creamy-white flesh that is fine-grained
Experience: Fuji apples are crisp and very juicy with a sugary-sweet flavor that resembles that of freshly pressed apple juice
