Fuji apples are moderately sized fruits, averaging 6 to 8 centimeters in diameter, and have a round to ovate shape with a slightly lopsided appearance. The semi-thick skin is smooth, waxy, and has a yellow-green base, covered in red-pink striping and blush. Fuji apples are known to display a wide range of skin color variation between fruits due to many sports being cultivated with varying shades. Underneath the surface, the flesh is dense, aqueous, crisp, fine-grained, and pale ivory to white, encasing a central core filled with small, black-brown seeds. Fuji apples are crunchy and low in acid, creating a mild and balanced, sweet-tart flavor with notes of honey and citrus.
Fuji apples are available year-round, with a peak season in the late fall through winter.
Fuji apples, botanically classified as Malus domestica, are a late-ripening variety that belongs to the Rosaceae family. The Japanese created cultivar was bred from two American varieties and is considered to be one of the sweetest apples available in the global market. Fuji apples are also one of the most commercially cultivated varieties in China, the United States, and Japan in the modern-day. Fuji apples are named after their place of creation, Fujisaki, and were selected for their sweet flavor, crisp texture, dense flesh, and extended storage capabilities. Under the Fuji apple name, there are also multiple varieties found in Japan that have been created from different cultivation methods and are known as the sun-fuji and moon fuji. Sun-fuji apples are allowed to receive direct sunlight when growing to increase the sugar content in the flesh, while moon fuji apples are bagged and protected from the sun until they are ready to be picked.
Fuji apples are an excellent source of vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that can boost the immune system, increase collagen production, and protect the body against environmental damage. The fruits are also a good source of fiber, which can stimulate digestion and contain smaller amounts of vitamin A, iron, potassium, folate, and calcium.
Fuji apples are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as baking, roasting, and stewing. The apples can be sliced and tossed into green and fruit salads, grated into coleslaw, minced and stirred into rice, or chopped and used as a topping over oatmeal, pancakes, and cereal. Fuji apples can also be pressed into juices and cider, cooked into jelly, steeped into teas, blended into applesauce, or boiled into apple butter. The thick skin and dense flesh of the apple hold well when cooked, making the apple a popular variety used in soups and roasts or baked into pies, cakes, tarts, crumbles, crisps, and muffins. Fuji apples can also be layered in sandwiches, topped over pizza, cooked into quiche, or mashed into potatoes. In Japan, Fuji apples are commonly placed on a stick and dipped in caramel or candy coatings as a sweet treat at food festivals. Fuji apples pair well with meats such as pork chops, bacon, sausage, bacon, turkey, and poultry, cheeses such as cheddar, goat, brie, manchego, gorgonzola, and blue, thyme, dates, spinach, cabbage, brussels sprouts, and green beans. The fresh apples will keep 3-6 months when stored in a cool, dry, and dark place such as the refrigerator.
In Fujisaki, Japan, the hometown of Fuji apples, the apple variety is celebrated at the annual Fujisaki Autumn Festival. The celebration is held in November and is centered around rice and apples, which are the two most important streams of revenue for the agricultural city. During the festival, Fuji apples are used in artwork and pyramids, and there are contests held to guess the number of apples it took to complete the art pieces. Fuji apples are also locally sourced and baked into one of the world’s largest apple pies. Once baked, the pie is then shared with visitors of the festival as a symbol of friendship and goodwill. In addition to artwork and culinary demonstrations, the Fujisaki Autumn Festival also hosts many educational lectures surrounding apple and rice cultivation and also holds discussions centered around promoting healthy lifestyle habits.
Fuji apples were first developed in the 1930s at a branch of the Tohoku Research Station located in Fujisaki, Japan. The variety was created from a natural cross between the ralls janet and red delicious, and after years of trials and testing, it was released to the market in the 1960s. Fuji apples quickly became one of the most commonly grown apple varieties in Japan, and in 1980, it was introduced to the United States, where it also saw widespread commercial success. Today Fuji apples are one of the most popular sweet apple varieties in the world and are commercially grown in Japan, China, the United States, and Australia. The fruits can be easily found at specialty grocers and farmer’s markets and are also cultivated in home gardens.
