    The U.S. Apple Association shares facts and recipe ideas for the Fuji apple.

    Female Speaker: Here is the Fuji, and if you ever wondered if it was named after Mount Fuji in Japan, you are correct. Fujis are bicolored, typically striped with red and yellow. Crisp, but yet tender, this sweet apple is fantastic for a reliable snack, because it's available year-round. The U.

    S. started growing Fujis in the 1980s, meaning they are one of the only things from that decade that are actually still cool.

    In fact, they are now one of the top three most popular apples in the nation. This healthy pick has a pleasing firm texture and I personally like them after a workout, dipped in light French vanilla fruit dip. That's your Fuji, sweet, crisp, yet tender, and like all apples, only 80 calories for a medium-sized power snack.
