This apple variety is pink to light green depending on the sun exposure each fruit receives. The texture is crisp juicy, and the taste is mostly sweet and fresh. They store well and will ripen in late September into October. This tree was first bred in Japan in the 30s but is now a large part of the apple market worldwide. They are resistant to powdery mildew.
Fuji apples are not self-pollinating. They need another apple tree within 100 feet of them that blooms at the same time. In windy areas like Kansas, 20 feet apart will ensure much better pollination. Good varieties for pollinating Fuji apples include Gala, Granny Smith, Jonathan, Golden Delicious, and Honeycrisp.
