The Fuji (along with the Red Fuji) is a favorite apple of mine. I have both a three in one graft on root stock and a stand alone Fuji Apple tree. The both do great where we live... +/- 400 chill hours. We have them planted in an area with six different apples for cross pollination. Heavy producer even in our summer pruned short tree configurations.

Extremely crisp textured with a spicy flavor, Fuji's are a favorite of mine.The light colored flesh is extremely juicy and it is a wonderful apple for fresh use.

"Named after the Mount Fuji in Japan, they are a combination of two varieties: Red Delicious and Ralls Janet.

Fuji apples were developed by researchers in Japan and they were first brought to market in 1962. They became available in the United States in the 1980s."
