The name Fuji comes from "Fujisaki". Nevertheless, the origin of this name is often confused, as people believe it comes from Mount Fuji.
The fruit has a smooth (but not shiny) skin and a faded red colour, on a creamy white background.
It is more opaque than other apples and may have golden spots or be striped.
The pulp is dense and crunchy, light yellow in colour, juicy, firm, aromatic, with a sweet taste and low acidity. When harvested, the fruit should have a pulp firmness between 7.0 and 9.0 Kg/cm2, as well as a refractometric index higher than 12% (Brix), which can reach 16 - 18%.
