I had grown Sept. Wonder Fuji Apples from Stark Bros. at a property that I owned several years ago, and the trees were hardy and robust. Now that we are (hopefully) done with moving around the country, I wanted another one of these trees.
KARLA U on May 29, 2016
This is the most nutrishous of the apples. It's sweet and tasty. Kids would like this apple more than most others.

Is fuji apple good for applesauce and jelly?
Millie F on Mar 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I was selected to answer this question regarding the Fuji Apple tree we planted. According to the characteristics provided my Stark Brothers, it takes 2-5 years for this tree to bear fruit. Given my tree was planted 17 months ago, it's appears it will require a couple more years to produce. For applesauce we always used Yellow Transparent apples.
Are Fuji apples good for Freezing slices to make applesauce?
Ernie on Sep 2, 2016
I freeze apples all the time. Never sure what variety I am freezing, so I am sure that at some point a Fuji got in there somewhere. I vacuum pack the apples before placing in the freezer. They come out just as white as when they went in. I use them for making apple pie, applesauce, and apple desserts. So yummy in the middle of the winter or early spring knowing you have used your own apples. Have fun, experiment. You have nothing to lose.
Is this apple a Beni Shogun? Thanks.
LOUISE G on Feb 27, 2017
You had asked if ???Beni Shogun??? and ???September Wonder Fuj??? are the same cultivar. The answer is ???yes??? and ???no???. The original Fuji cultivar was introduced in 1962, and like many cultivars, chance mutations (changes in the genetics) will happen on trees, and these changes, if noticed, are called ???sports???. In the case of ???Beni Shogun???, it was a sport of the original Fuji that showed up in a group of Fuji trees in an orchard in 1992. The apples on the original limb that had the sport mutation on it were a dark solid red (much better color than the original Fuji) and so they propagated new trees from buds off of this limb and called/marketed it ???Beni Shogun???. Likewise, in another Fuji orchard owned by Ralph Broetje, in Prescott, WA, a limb was found on a Fuji tree that had apples ripening 4-6 weeks earlier than the rest of the limbs. Again, they took buds off of that limb and patented it in 2000. They originally named it ???Jubilee??? as the patented cultivar name but have also trademarked it as September Wonder TM. So, both Beni Shogun and September Wonder are essentially Fuji but have arisen as separate mutations with their own unique characteristics. Brian
Would a golden delicious tree be a polenator for a fuji ?
Tom Y on May 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Golden Delicious is an excellent choice for pollinating Fuji apple trees!
Do the apples still store well in this earlier variety?
Gail P on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This variety's keeping quality is maintained for up to 8 months in Controlled Atmosphere storage, or 4 to 5 months in common storage at 32??F.
Can you plant any type of apple try to pollinate fuji apple trees or does it need to be specific trees?
Lance S on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It has to be an apple tree to cross pollinate the Fuji, but not just any apple tree will work. There are some apple varieties that are pollen sterile ("triploids") and therefore cannot pollinate other apple trees. We recommend early to mid-season blooming varieties like Lodi, Granny Smith, Gala, Golden Delicious, and so on.

Fuji Apple Review South Carolina
I needed the Fuji Apple to cross pollinate with a red delicious apple. The tree is doing fine and coming right along. While it was too young to bear fruit, it did have some blossoms this year.

Excellent service.
My September Fuji Apple trees are growing well this year. I had some problems the first time I tried to get them going. I don't know whether it was my rookie plantings or a root disease, I lost one, 2 years in a row. Stark brothers went above the norm and replaced them at no cost to me. I had flowers on my pollinator tree this year and with some careful pruning this off season, I expect some apples next year from the Fiji trees. I got the starter kit and it has worked well too. Very happy.

Wonder Trees
Received my Fuji as a 4 foot sapling and the first year growth was a race with my Criterion apple saplings. By fall the Fuji was 8 feet tall the Criterions' were 7' 10".The second year they all pushed the envelope to 12 feet tall". One Criterion had an apple blossom on it but it fell off during the June drop.

Death of an Apple Tree
My September Wonder Fuji Apple tree arrived in what seemed to be a 'good condition', however it doesn't appear to have survived the mild Missouri winter. I had great hopes of watching this dwarf thrive in my lush urban garden. Back to the drawing board for this seasoned gardener!

A bit small
I ordered the September Wonder the same time as the Granny Smith. The Granny was a nice, strong tree. The Sept. Wonder was much thinner. I ordered both in the Semi-Dwarf Supreme so I expected them to be similar but that wasn't the case for me. I have confidence the Granny will thrive but I am worried about the Sept. Wonder making it over the winter. Hopefully because we planted them in early spring it will come out of the winter fine.

Slow Starter
Received a small whip 2015 but finally end of summer 2016 the Fuji picked up. Not sure how the Fuji hybrids will tast, but the Fuji as well as the Pink Lady are Australian fruit trees that would not survive in my Z6 environment. So I'm hopefull the September Wonderful Fuji will pay homage to its pedigree!
