Fuji apples come to us as a cross between two other varieties of apples, Red Delicious and Virginia Ralls Janet apples. These apples are characterized by a pink or light red speckle over yellow-green skin. They may be found with red vertical striping. Fuji apples are crisp in texture and juicy with a mild, sweet flavor. These are typically too juicy to bake with, but pop one in your lunch and you won’t be disappointed.

One or two similar varieties: If you like Fuji try Cortland or Empire.
