About Fuji apples
The Fuji apple is one of the most popular apple varieties in all of Japan. It was bred from two American varieties — Red Delicious and Ralls Janet — and is considered one of the sweetest apple varieties available in the global market. The Fuji apple has the sweet flavor of Red Delicious apple and the tart crunchiness of Ralls Janet apple. However, it has slightly more flavor complexity than either of its parent apples.
The Fuji apple is a moderately sized fruit, averaging six and eight centimeters in diameter, and has a round or ovate shape with a slightly lopsided appearance. Its semi-thick skin is waxy, smooth, and has a yellow-green base, covered in red-pink blush and striping. Fuji apples are known to have a wide range of skin color variations due to many varietals being grown with differing shades. The flesh of Fuji apples is aqueous, fine-grained, dense, and white to pale ivory, encasing a central core filled with small, black seeds.
Fuji apples are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as stewing, roasting, and baking. They can be sliced and tossed into fruit and green salads, minced and stirred into rice, grates into coleslaw, or chopped and used as a topping over cereal, pancakes, and oatmeal. Fuji apples also make excellent apple cider or juice. Due to its high sugar content, it makes a deliciously sweet juice. It's also one of the best varieties to juice with cranberries or tart cherries. Tart fruit juice gives a balanced contrast to the sweetness of the apple juice.
Fuji apples are a great source of vitamin C, increasing collagen, boosting the immune system, and protecting your body against environmental damage. The apples are also an excellent source of fiber, which improves digestion and contains smaller amounts of calcium, folate, potassium, iron, and vitamin A.
