Fuji Apple

Fuji (Apple Variety)

The Fuji apple is an apple hybrid developed by growers at the Tohoku Research Station in Fujisaki, Aomori, Japan, in the late 1930s and brought to market in 1962. It originated as a cross between two American apple varieties—the Red Delicious and old Virginia Ralls Genet (sometimes cited as "Rawls Jennet") apples.
Contrary to popular opinion, it is named for Fujisaki town (the location of Tohoku Research Station), not for Mount Fuji.
