Fuji apples are a hybrid of a red delicious apple and a ralls genet apple. The Fuji was developed by food scientists in Fujisaki, Japan in the 1930′s but did not reach the food market until the 1960′s. The reason they are so popular is that they are usually sweeter and more crisp than other varieties of apples. They are typically 10% sugar which is more than the average apple. They are also larger and have a much longer shelf life than the average apple.
In Japanese culture the Fuji is far and away the most popular apple on the market.
