Malus domestica ‘Fuji’
Fuji was introduced to America from Japan in the 1980’s. It is a combination of Red Delicious and the heirloom apple Ralls Janet. The flesh is juicy, crisp and sweet, never mealy and ripens in September. Good for fresh eating as well as pies and sauces. A very popular dessert apple. Requires 700-900 hours of chilling. Our trees are grafted on EMLA rootstock and will be a 10-21 foot tree at maturity. Plant in full sun in well drained soil. Hardy in zones 5-8. Another apple variety is required for cross pollination in order to produce fruit. Trees are 3 gallon size and are shipped bare root.
