Place of Origin: Japan
Originally developed in Japan in the late 1930s, this apple was named after the famous Mt. Fuji. A cross between Ralls Janet and Red Delicious, the Fuji is bi-colored; typically striped with yellow and red. Over the years, its popularity has skyrocketed due to both its flavor, and its crunch. Fujis are super sweet and extremely juicy. This apple is perfect for snacking, but is also great for salads, baking, sauces, and even freezing for later. They are available year round, beginning in September.
