Looking for something a little more exotic in your fruit basket? The Fuji apple was developed in Japan in the 1930s and named after the Japanese town of Fujisaki, Aomori Prefecture. It’s a hybrid of Red Delicious and Ralls Janet.

Taste: Very sweet, juicy, and crisp

Use: Eating, sauces, salads. Add slices on top of a pizza or inside a quiche; also good for jams, soups, and compotes. Sweet apples like this one would make a perfect homemade applesauce, too; try this recipe

Nutritional value: High in both water and sugar

Fun fact: Fuji apples have a very long shelf life: rumor has it they can last for up to a year when refrigerated

Availability: October through June
