Fuji, Beni Shogun Apple Scionwood (Spring 2023)
An early-ripening Fuji sport. Also known as Heisei Fuji.
This tree is upright with narrow crotch angles. Detailed tree data is not yet available, but Fuji, Beni Shogun should be expected to perform in a similar manner to Fuji. Growers should avoid using (standard) Fuji as a pollenizer as the genetic composition of these two varieties may be too similar.
Many fruit lovers love the crisp juicy and very sweet taste of the Japanese apple Fuji. However, Fuji has too long of a ripening season to grow in areas with relatively cool summers. The Beni Shogun sport of Fuji has a beautiful pinkish-red color, outstanding flavor, and ripens almost a month before Fuji! It will be productive in USDA Zones 5-9.
This tree is a sport of Yataka Fuji, which is a mutation of Standard Fuji.
