Norman Kauffman thinks that Fuji apples are about as sweet - and about as good! - as apples get.!

Watch "Fuji Apple Salad Recipe" Video.
Unusually sweet and extra crunchy, Fuji was developed in Japan as a naturally occuring, non-GMO cross of two American varieties, one of which is Red Delicious. For obvious reasons Fuji has quickly become an American (and worldwide) favorite! It is a classic variety for fresh eating and salads (don't miss the Fuji Apple Salad Recipe Video, below) and is an outstanding keeper. Fuji are generally harvested in our orchards in October and are available in our market and online throughout the autumn and winter months.

History Lesson for Today! "Edmund Charles Genet, French minister to the United States in the 1790s, gave Thomas Jefferson a gift of apple cuttings that Jefferson donated to a Virginia nursery, which then cultivated a variety of apple known as the “Ralls Genet.” In 1939, Japanese apple breeders crossed the genes from the classic Red Delicious apple variety with that of Jefferson’s Ralls Genet, resulting in the now ubiquitous Fuji apple." Source; All About Apples website.

Did you know? That great new apple variety of renoun which originated in Japan a few decades ago was named after Mount Fuji, the country's highest peak.

Extra, EXTRA: The no-sweeteners-added applesauce that Wanda Kauffman crafted recently using Golden Delicious and Fuji (a new combination for her) drew rave reviews from family and friends!

This Just In: "Firm, crisp, and juicy, Fuji apples are among the most popular apples for eating fresh, but they’re also great for baking, as they hold their shape when they cook." This "announcement" from the allrecipes website. (Emphasis added)

Now Don't Miss This: No less an authority then our orchard manager, Clair Kauffman (along with his wife and four children!) proclaims that Fuji is THE variety to use when it comes to Stewed Apples With Cinnamon! This family also suggests that diced apples sprinkled on top of haystacks or chili soup may please those at your house as well as theirs!

More great variety possibilities which we grow at Kauffman's Fruit Farm that are similar to Fuji include CrimsonCrisp and Cameo.

Does it get more handy and effortless than this?

You can expect that they'll show up at your house soon in optimal condition, just ready for you and yours to enjoy!.

We always ship fruit in boxes that are fitted with high-density foam cushioning. Each apple occupies its own foam slot for protection, and we pack the box with fruit that is of highest quality. However, we have no control over distance, storage, temperature, or handling during transit, so if the fruit arrives overripe or spoiled, we most likely will not offer a refund, although you're welcome to contact us about it. We offer 2nd Business Day and Next Business Day shipping for customers like you who'd like to take an extra step in protecting your Fuji apples during shipping. This item is not available for sale in or to California, Oregon, and Washington.
