New Crop California Early Fuji
We are very excited that the new crop of California Early Fuji apples, from fifth generation orchardists Rider & Sons in Watsonville, will be arriving by the end of the week. Last year the Rider and Sons Early Fuji season started late and lasted only a few weeks due to the drought and higher than average temperatures. Rider and Sons is located about 1 ½ hours south of San Francisco along the Central Coast of California.
We expect the Early Fuji to be available for about a month with limited supply, followed by a seamless transition to the Standard Fuji. Weather dependent, we can look forward to enjoying California Fuji’s through March. Fuji apples are great for eating out of hand and fantastic for juicing.
