Fuji Apple Blossoms & Picking Fascination

Here are some quick facts about the Fuji Apple from Wikipedia:
The Fuji Apple is an apple clone developed by growers at the Tohoku Research Station in Fujisaki, Aomori, Japan, in the late 1930s,[1] and brought to market in 1962. It originated as a cross between two American apple varieties, the Red Delicious and old Virginia Ralls Genet (sometimes cited as "Rawls Jennet") apples.
It is named after "Fujisaki ([藤]崎)," Aomori Prefecture (青森県), but often mistakenly thought to be named after Mount Fuji (富士山).

I have yet another blossomed fruit tree to showoff. These images of the Fuji Apple Blossoms are from my Fuji Apple tree. Yes, I have many fruit trees. My mother loves to pick the apples when it's time, because picking fruits off a tree is very pleasurable, especially the ones in your own yard. The thrill of reaping the fruit is very gratifying, and that could be why she could never stop at one or 12. She has to pick until there is none left on the trees.

Thereafter, September, or October is when this tree will be full with ripened fruits transformed from the Fuji Apple Blossoms. I would always tell her to pick a few, because I know how much happiness it brings her. Thereafter, I would feel so bad to see that she had picked every single apple off from the tree. On the positive side, it's really great to see her so fascinated and excited even at the expense of my pain.
You might have already guessed that I have much love for my trees and my plants. One reason I do is for the comfort they provide. All I have to do is glance at them and I am content.
I used the Fuji Apples to make salads last summer. They are also great for snacks. Fuji Apples are very sweet, juicy and super crispy. Fuji Apple is one of the favorite varieties among many consumers.

  1. The apple blossoms are gorgeous, they must smell wonderful. We have a lot of apple growers in our area and I love it when the trees are in bloom.

    The Fuji is one of my favorite apples, I'll bet they are delicious right from the tree.

  19. That apple looks much like a Red Delicious but as I have checked it is a hybrid developed in Japan, still flowers are amazing.

  20. So, you let her to peel off the whole tree?? But why? Can't she withhold her thrill for the sake of your beloved trees? I have a cousin like that, but he had the same thing for strawberries.
