Fuji Apple Tree
Spectacular Spring Display and Outstanding Fruit
The Fuji Apple tree delivers a spectacular spring display and an outstanding fall harvest. It would look great in your yard as an ornamental focal point, or plant several as a small orchard on the sunny side of your home.
The fuji apple tree is a cross between the Red Delicious and the Virginia Ralls Genet apple. In the spring, delicate white blooms bathed in a pinkish hue will seem to envelope your Fuji apple's branches, giving it the appearance of a plant that's more flowers than tree. This "tree of flowers" will further tantalize your senses as its heavenly scent drifts on the breeze to every spot in your yard.
The Fuji apple tree will maintain a vibrant green through the summer. You can watch in wonder as the tiny apples slowly reach their maturity. When others are mourning the loss of summer, you'll look forward to October when your fruit is ready to harvest.
The flavor of the Fuji apple is prized, and in fact it's now one of the favorite apples in the United States. You'll love that hearty crunch when you bite into a Fuji, followed by the succulent sweet juice that naturally flows from the dense texture of the fruit.
The Fuji apple is a large, round fruit with a bright red color and some yellow highlights. It's sweet and crisp with a firm texture and long shelf-life. You don't even have to refrigerate it in storage. It's great for snacking as well as a good baking apple. You can't go wrong with Fuji apple trees in your landscape.

Commercial Success of the Fuji Apple
The Fuji stands as one of the most popular apple varieties available today. Ranked third behind the Red Delicious and Gala in 2017 sales, and its popularity continues to grow year to year.
The Fuji Apple is the result of a cross created by the Tohoku Research Station in Fujisaki Japan, the city where the Fuji earned its name, in late 1930. It is the result of the cross of 2 American apple varieties; the Ralls Janet and the Red Delicious. The Ralls Janet apple was first grown on the farm of M. Caleb Ralls in Amherst county Virginia in the late 1700's. Reports that the variety was gifted to Thomas Jefferson by Charles Genet, the French minister to the United States, and planted at Monticello are vague. The variety has been used in several popular apple crosses through years since.
Today's Fuji apple was introduced into the US in the early 1960's, not gaining popularity until its widespread market introduction in the early 1980's. Since that time many selections have been introduced to the commercial market with different ripening times, deeper red color, and better storage adaptations. The BC 2, one of early introductions of Fuji, remains one of the most popular grown for the home gardener. Its flavor is the true standard for all Fuji Apples offered today.
Though Fuji is reported to be self- fruitful, this may be limited to a very few locations such as the cooler coastal regions of California. Therefore, it is recommended that Fuji be planted with a pollinating variety. Fuji can take up to 3 years to produce fruit.
