How to use Fuji

Suitable for snacking, salad, baking and juicing. Fuji apples are also great storing apples.

At the Core

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. Now 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).

Health & Nutrition

Nature’s own health foods are grown in rich New Zealand soils, sustained with pure water and kissed by the sun. Packed with flavour and juice, they also pack a nutritious punch.

Storage Tips

While sunlight is an integral ingredient in growing our fruit, it is not wanted to keep them fresh. Store your apples in the coldest part of your fridge around one or two degrees Celsius (35 degrees Fahrenheit). If storing an entire box, keep in a cool, dark place.
