The Instacart guide to Kiku apples
About Kiku apples
The Kiku apple started as a red sport. A red sport is a natural mutation, which causes a particular branch of an apple tree to produce fruit that looks slightly different from the rest. In the 1990s, Louis Braun was abroad in Japan and found this red sport apple hanging from a Fuji tree. After falling in love with the beautiful red-striped pattern of this apple, Braun bought the rights to the apple and took it to his orchard in Italy.
Though most of these apples still come from Italy, they were introduced to the U.S. market in 2010. Now orchards in Washington, Michigan, and Pennsylvania grow this variety too. In the off-season, the U.S. receives imports from Chile and New Zealand, where the trees grow happily in warmer climates. It still ripens to a striking striped ruby red, and they are typically smaller than their Fuji cousins.
