This immensely flavorful, new variety was introduced to the U.S from Japan in the 1980s, but now the U. S, produces more Fujis than Japan. Each year, this big, super-sweet, crisp apple gains new fans. The Fuji holds its texture when baked. It’s known for its hard texture and syrupy sweetness. It’s also excellent for baking and salads. Washington’s cool weather in the late fall helps develop its reddish-pink color and superb flavor. Fujis are harvested in October and can be purchased October to August.
Flavor: Super-sweet, Crisp Season: October through August
