DID YOU KNOW?

Developed in the late 1930s by growers at the Tohoku Research Station in Fujisaki, Aomori Prefecture – Japan, Fuji apple is a cross between two classic American apple varieties – Red Delicious and Virginia Ralls Janet. Its name is derived from the first part of the town where it was developed: Fujisaki. Since then, the apple has grown into one of the most popular varieties, in particular for sweet apples’ fans, who adore it because of its high sugar level (15-18). Fuji apples are also great storing apples.
