Without doubt one of sweetest apples you’ll ever taste. ‘Fuji Kiku’ is renowned for its flavour and almost complete lack of acidity, which only serves to enhance the sweetness more!
The large, ruby red apples have thin, lighter coloured stripes and look stunning when hanging ripe on the tree. Perfect for eating fresh from the branch, juicy and firm with a good crunch, they also retain their shape well when cooked, so they’re ideal for pies and tarts, and make a particularly good, naturally sweet applesauce.
Ready to harvest from late October, these late season apples keep well, so you can enjoy your harvest into the next year.
’Fuli Kiku’ requires another apple tree nearby to pollinate it, but given the popularity for growing-your-own fruit and vegetables, you can be sure that there will be one close by.
Supplied as an established tree, 150cm (5ft) tall grown on an M9 dwarfing rootstock in a 24cm pot, growing to a height and spread of 2.5m (8ft).
