Fuji BC #2 Apple

Fuji BC #2 Apple

History: Also known as Red Fuji, Fuji BC #2 is a sport (mutation) of the original Fuji apple that has redder skin. Although little can be found on the exact origins of this sport, its name suggests it originated in BC where it tends to be the most popular. 

Why We Grow It: Along with the great sweet flavour and juiciness of the original, Fuji BC #2 also boasts redder skin, making it more appealing for those who prefer red apples.

Shipping vs. Pick Up

CLICK HERE to see how shipping compares to pick up.

Shipping: Every year we ship thousands of trees across Canada (except BC due to CFIA regulations). We carefully bag roots in damp sawdust, then box them and send them out via courrier. CLICK HERE to see our shipping policy.

Pick-up: We also have thousands of trees picked up from our nursery each year. The pick-up options is free, though you must wait until you have been emailed a confirmation that your order is ready to pick up, which will have further information such as hours, locations, etc. We really appreciate if you can make an appointment to pick up, then we can be as organized as possible during our busy season.
