The Fuji apple was developed by growers in Fujisaki Tohoku in Japan in the late 1930s at Tohoku Research Station. It originated as a cross between two American apple varieties, the Red Delicious and the old Virginia Ralls Janet apples. It received its name from the first part of Fujisaki, where it originated.
Fuji apples are typically large and round and have a long shelf life even without refrigeration. If refrigerated, the Fuji apple can last up to a year. They have dense flesh and are sweeter and crisper than many other apple cultivars.
Of course, adding healthy fruits to your daily diet is wise. However, eating organic fruits is smarter. Why? No chemicals. Eating foods with minimal chemicals helps prevent early illness.
The sugar found in apples is fructose. When fructose gets consumed in whole fruit, it has little effect on blood sugar levels. In addition, fibers found in apples slow down the digestive system.
