The Fuji apple is an apple cultivar developed by growers at Tohoku Research Station in Fujisaki, Aomori, Japan, in the late 1930s. It was brought to market in 1962. It originated as a cross between two American apple varieties—the Red Delicious and old Virginia Ralls Genet apples. Fuji apples account for nearly 70% of China's total of 43 million tons of apples grown. There are 7000 different kinds of apples grown all around the globe! Packed with natural sugar, apples are a great way to wake up, even better than coffee.
