Fuji (early) apple tree

Fuji (early) is listed in the RHS Plants for Pollinators
  • Picking season: Mid
  • Self-fertility: Not self-fertile
  • Pollination group: 3

The popular crisp sweet Fuji apple is not easy to grow in cooler climates because it needs an exceptionally growing season. However there are a number of sports or variants of Fuji such as Beni Shogun, Rising Sun, and September Wonder, which feature the crisp sweetness of the original Fuji - but ripen up to 4 weeks earlier.

If you are in zones 5 or 6, or in an area such as the Pacific North West where the maritime climate moderates sunlight hours, early Fuji is more likely to succeed than the original late-season variety.
