Where does the Fuji apple tree grow best?
These trees thrive in zones 6-9, which is most of the country. They thrive in a variety of growing conditions because they are very pest and disease resistant. They need 6-8 hours of direct sunlight a day, and 300-600 chill hours in order to produce fruit. They're also one of the most drought tolerant apple varieties you can find.

These trees are preferred by organic gardeners because they do not need pesticides or chemical sprays- they're naturally pest and disease resistant. These are low maintenance trees, you don’t need to give them constant attention.
How much fruit will I get?
These trees have been bred at our nursery to encourage maximum fruit production. We’ve grown them an extra year, and pruned them to encourage more branching. More branches means more apples! In fact, you could even see apples on your tree as soon as the first growing season. One mature Fuji Apple tree can produce up to 250 pounds of fruit a year. At $4 per pound, you’re saving $1,000 every year!
What does the Fuji apple taste like?
These apples are crisp with a sugary-sweet flavor, like freshly pressed apple juice. It tastes like a cross between the Red Delicious and Virginia Ralls Genet varieties. Great for pies, sauces, jellies and even vinegars.
Pollination & fruiting season
The Fuji apple needs a cross-pollinator planted nearby. The Gala, Granny Smith, Red Delicious or Yellow Delicious are the best pollinators. Once pollinated, you can expect a large harvest of deep red, juicy fruit. They have a very long shelf life, even without refrigeration. If you cool them in the fridge, they remain fresh for months.
Best time to plant
You can plant your Red Fuji Apple Tree at any time of year. Just make sure your ground isn’t frozen. You should get your tree in the ground as soon as possible so that it can adjust to your climate and growing conditions. The sooner this happens, the sooner you’ll get fruit.
Due to agricultural restrictions, we cannot ship these trees AZ, CA, ID or OR.
