This is the last apple to be harvested, but the first in terms of sweetness.
From mid-October onwards, when all the other apples have already been harvested and the highest peaks of the Trentino valleys are already covered in snow, the apple-growers collect the Fuji Melindas. The tree's long growth period lets the apples accumulate so many sugars that the Fuji is the absolute number one in sweetness, a real pleasure for your palate. Fuji Melindas are born and grow in the mountains, which is why they have a more intense colour and a more compact pulp than normal Fujis grown at lower altitudes and, above all, it has a stronger, more balanced flavour that is never overly sweet.
Bright red-orange colour. Round and regular, it is incredibly firm and compact.
Sweet and delicious. Features a very high fructose content, and is also distinguished for its remarkable crunchiness, with an excellent flavour.
Creamy white. Very compact and crunchy, extremely sweet and juicy.
Fujis are a must-have on the table, as an incredibly pleasant and light treat at the end of meals . Yet its firm flesh and thick skin make it ideal for taking it with you in your bag, pocket or backpack, because it retains all of its characteristics. Fuji Melindas are also perfect as a snack at any time of the day or as an occasional substitute for lunch at work.
If you want to savour it in all its fragrance, we suggest eating it within seven days of purchase.
After bringing them home, place them in the fruit and vegetable compartment of your fridge (ideal temperature 3-4 °C) for the shortest amount of time, and remove no more than two hours before eating them. Avoid storing them at room temperature for several days.
