From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (edited):
The Fuji apple is a Red Delicious apple and Ralls Genet (sometimes cited as "Ralls Janet" or "Rawls Jennet") apple hybrid developed by growers at the Tohoku Research Station in Fujisaki, Aomori, Japan, in the late 1930s, and brought to market in 1962. It originated as a cross between two American apple varieties, the Red Delicious and old Virginia Ralls Genet. It is named after Fujisaki, Aomori Prefecture, but often mistakenly thought to be named after Mount Fuji.
