Malus domestica Borkh.
Rounded in shape, with a juicy and crisp pulp, Fuji apple is sweet but has a fair ammount of acidity. Highly prized for fresh consumption, it is also widely used in cooking, for both savory and sweet recipes. Originally from Japan, this variety has adapted well to the climate of Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul. Although it can be found year round in farm markets and supermarkets, it is at its best from August to December.
