Very Practical – bought this for a friend to make baked apples. Her hands aren’t what they used to be. She loves it!

The Fuji apple is an apple clone developed by growers at the Tohoku Research Station in Fujisaki, Aomori, Japan, in the late 1930s, and brought to market in 1962. It originated as a cross between the Red Delicious and old Virginia Ralls Genet apples. It is named after “Fujisaki,” but often mistakenly thought to be named after Mount Fuji.

Since their introduction into the U.S. market in the 1980s, Fuji apples have gained popularity with American consumers as well. Fuji apples are now also grown in Washington, New York, and California.

Fuji apples have a high amount of flavonoids, especially quercitin which has powerful antioxidant properties. They are also rich in vitamin C and a good source of natural fiber such as pectin. The phytonutrients in apples help regulate blood sugar as well.

Available year round, choose apples that are firm with no soft spots. Avoid apples that are discolored. Fuji varies from yellow-green with red highlights to very red. Like fine wine, this apple’s flavor improves with age.
