Fuji: The Exotic Sounding Apple that Tastes Right at Home in Virginia
Although the name may conjure up images of the Orient, Fuji apples are definitely at home in Virginia. This deliciously sweet apple is actually a cross between all-time favorite Red Delicious and old Virginia Rawls Jennet apples. Its appearance is a distinctive combination of red blush, striped with green and yellow.
The Fuji is a hard-working apple. It's excellent for snacking and for cooking. It stores well, even without refrigeration. For retailers, that means extended shelf life. For consumers, it means the perfect take-along for school lunches and picnics.
Buyers also know the Fuji as the best sweet apple available after November 1, so the delicious flavor and great texture will continue long past other apples for baking, for applesauce, for salads and for snacks.
