‘Fuji’ Apple

Developed in Japan, the Fuji apple was introduced in 1962. Blooms well. Heavy bearer. High quality apple. Medium sized fruit with a tall, rectangular shape. A yellow-green skin with orange to red stripes. Crisp, juicy, white flesh with good texture. Requires about 140-160 days from bloom to harvest, ripening mid-summer. Stores well. Vigorous, productive, somewhat bushy tree. Needs some annual detailed pruning. An excellent pollinator for other varieties, but not self-fruitful. Gala or Granny Smith are good pollinators for Fuji. A great variety for the south, since it is heat resistant.

400-600 hours of chilling. Zones 6-9.
