The thick skin of the Fuji apple is light red with a yellow blush, and sometimes lined with red stripes.
Named after Mt. Fuji in Japan, Fuji apples are a cross between Red Delicious and Ralls Janet, first discovered in Fujisaki in the late 1930s.
Sweeter than most, Fuji apples have a dense flesh that is sweet and crisp. Low in acid, the flavour is mild yet sweet.
