There are over 15 thousand varieties in the world and two-thousand in Japan. When doing some research on apples, I taste them and ask myself a simple question: why are apples so perfect in Japan? Appearance is very important in Japan and hence apples must be perfect in texture and physical appearance. Japanese farmers take pride in farming apples and take the utmost care in pruning their trees and weeding out unwanted fruit. On top of it, careful attention is paid to the taste, and each apple has a taste specification and is graded and selected very carefully.
Wasekei Fuji is the variety that ripens earlier than other Fuji apples. It indicates the generic name of the Fuji variety. It includes Hirosaki Fuji, Yataka, Kourin, Benishougun, and Ryouka no kisetsu. They all taste similar to Fuji and have superb flavor with proper sweet-tart combination.
