Apple Fuji has a predominantly red/dull pink blush over a green/yellow base. It may have a speckled or striped pattern on its skin. These apples are firm, pinkish-skinned, sugary-sweet flavoured, juicy fruits that are native to Japan. They are a good source of soluble as well as insoluble fibre, vitamins A and C. They contain high quantities of sugar and water.
Apples are a rich source of dietary fiber, which helps in slow release of sugars in the body, maintaining a steady blood sugar level and lowers the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. They helps to prevent “heart disease”, contain anti-oxidant properties that help battle “cancerous” cells and protect the skin from “UV-B rays”. They also help reduce “cholesterol”.
It is great in salads, pies and sauces.
