Fuji is one of the most successful recent introductions. It has an unusual combination of low-acid sweetness with crunchy, juicy flesh and a pleasant aroma described as "warm" by some observers. Fuji is becoming immensely popular around the world. The fruit has a greenish cast when ripe, overlayed with pinkish stripes. We have eaten this variety after it has been in storage for 6 months or more and been favorably impressed, which means that Fuji is a good choice in the supermarket. You will see them in the market from New Zealand in the spring and summer, but we feel that the Washington grown Fujis have slightly better flavor, even after extended storage. We prefer an apple with a little more "kick", (like Braeburn or Mutsu), but if you like a milder, sweeter apple, this one may well become your favorite.
