Organic Fuji Apples

Size

Fuji apples are super sweet through and through with a delightfully crisp texture. Fujis are a cross between Red Delicious and Ralls Janet, an heirloom apple dating back to Thomas Jefferson. We like to eat them chilled, letting the sugary sweetness burst to life on the tongue. We partner with other local, organic producers to bring you the best Fuji apples in California.

What Are They? Fuji apples (botanical name Malus domestica) are the successful cross of two American varieties, the Red Delicious and Virginia Ralls Janet.
Origins/History:Fujis were first developed in Japan. Some say their name was given to them as homage to Japan’s most sacred mountain, Mount Fuji, but it is more likely they were named after Fujisaki, the location of the research center where they were developed.
Nutritional Value: Fuji apples contain Vitamins A and C, as well trace amounts of folate and potassium.
How to cut/peel:Use a veggie peeler to remove the skin. Cut into quarter and remove the core.
Serving Suggestions:Eaten out of hand, in salads, in desserts. Fuji apples can be roasted, baked, sautéed and boiled down into sauce. Add slices atop pizza or layer inside a quiche, or chop and slow cook chunks of Fuji apple to make jams, soups, and compotes. Their sweet flavor holds up when cooked as well; try added to baked desserts such as strudels and crisps. This sweet apple pairs well with sharp cheeses, such as sharp cheddar. Fujis store very well under proper cold, dry conditions.
