Fruit of the Month: Fuji Apples

At The Fruit Company, we adore Fall. With this season, we look forward to the changing tree colors, cooler weather and apple season! Fuji apples are our November Fruit of the Month and 10% off while quantities last. Once our Fuji apples are harvested, they are put into cold storage, to maintain the perfect level of ripeness for our loyal customers. These apples are blessed with a relatively long shelf life in comparison to other varieties.

Fuji apples are one of the most popular apples in the United States, mainly due to their crisp, sweet and crunchy persona. We can thank Japan for creating this apple in 1930 by crossing a Ralls Janet and a Red Delicious. Their scent is warm and autumnal and their flesh is bi-colored with vertical red and yellow stripes along the sides.  Apples are the second highest consumed fruit in the nation (second only to bananas).

As the saying goes, an apple a day keeps the doctor away! Nutritional researchers note that apple consumption supports to balance populations of bacteria in our lower digestive tract. They also can have cardiovascular benefits to the body. Fuji apples are well known for having high levels of antioxidants and good levels of fiber and Vitamin C.

Apples can be enjoyed in many ways, a few serving ideas are to dice the apples for salads, include the apples in smoothies or bake with them. Our favorite apple recipes are our heart crusted apple pie, apple carrot muffins, and apple sausage bread pudding.

The Fruit Company® got its start in 1942 when Roy Webster began selling apples and pears from his orchards located in Hood River, Oregon. The area was perfect for growing fruit thanks to the volcanically enriched soil and glacial water from the nearby Mt. Hood. The fruit was exceptional. The company was passed down from father to son and today is owned and operated by Roy's Grandson Scott Webster.
