Apple Tree, 'Fuji'

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit Trees!
The delightfully crisp and sweet 'Fuji' apple is one of the most favorite fresh eating apples in America. 'Fuji' apples are typically round and range from large to very large. They have a dense flesh that is sweeter and crisper than many other apples. Fuji apples also have a very long shelf life compared to other apples, even without refrigeration. With refrigeration, Fuji apples can remain fresh for up to a year. 'Fuji' apple trees are a great one to grow at home if you enjoy eating sweet, crunchy apples.

Apple trees are the most popular and widely grown fruit trees in America. If the proper variety is selected, one may grow apples in any one of the lower 48 states. Apples have long been considered a fruit for northern states only. However, there are several apple varieties that will produce delicious apples in the South as well. Most apple trees require cross-pollination or the presence of a crabapple tree to bear fruit. There are literally hundreds of apple varieties, so we have selected the top choices for home gardening. Also, many of our selections are well known commercial varieties that most Americans have come across in their local grocery.
