1Mount Fuji — el Fujiyama
- The Grapple is a Fuji apple soaked in a grape solution.
- In the United States and Japan, where Fujis originated, bagging is practiced to enhance the apple's red color close to harvest.
- With refrigeration, Fuji apples can last up to 5-6 months.
- Fuji apples are typically large or very large and round, on average the size of a baseball.
- This immensely flavorful, new variety was introduced to the U.S. from Japan in the 1980s, but now the U.S. produces more Fujis than Japan.
- They're a bit tart, a bit sweet, firm, and flavorful - better even than decent apples like Galas, Fujis, Breaburns, Macintoshes, Pippins, and Granny Smiths, and far better than those Golden Delicious / Red Delicious abominations.
- An eight-ounce serving of grapes has about the same amount of proanthocyanidins as a half cup serving of blueberries, about 50 percent more than a Fuji apple and about twice as much as a half cup of green or red grapes.
- She and I were sitting at the dining table doing homework as Tristan, who had just gotten home from work, was leaning against the kitchen counter, thoughtfully eating a Fuji apple and flipping through an East Bay catalog.
- Red Delicious apples comprise 40% of the 3-million cartons grown here, followed by Fujis, Golden Delicious and Jonagold.
- We'll be halfway through eating a Fuji apple in bed and I'll look at Jerry, and I'll say to him, I think we saw this.
