Semi Dwarf Apple Fuji

Fuji apple trees for sale at The Country Bumpkin Garden Nursery.
Malus ‘Fuji’, is commonly known as the Fuji apple. Originating from Japan, this culinary cultivar resulted from a crossbreeding between the American apple varieties Red Delicious and Ralls Janet. Its pure white flowers bloom in late mid-season, adorning the branches and attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Come fall, the tree bears a heavy crop of medium-sized apples with a striking orange-red blush. These apples are sweet, crisp, and juicy, striking a harmonious balance between tartness and sweetness. When stored in a refrigerator, they remain fresh for up to 12 months.

Habitat and Cultivation

The tree’s mature size depends on the version chosen: dwarf (8–10 feet) or semi-dwarf (12–15 feet). As a culinary delight, it requires pollination by another apple tree with a matching bloom period, such as Braeburn, Golden Delicious, or Red Delicious. Regular pruning ensures optimal fruit production, while thinning the fruit to about 8 inches apart results in the best-quality yield.
