The number of breeds have been said to be more than 2,500 all over the world.Apple is one of the featured seasonal words of Autumn in Haiku, the Japanese poem. Apples became commonly grown in Japan about 100 years ago in the Meiji era, but interestingly it used to be a seasonal word for summer. This is because until then, there were only small Japanese apples which fruit around 6th month of lunar calendar which falls during summer. The apples we used for the seasonal canelés are Fuji, which are most widely grown in Japan. It is named after the town Fujisaki in Aomori where the apples were first grown with hopes to be the best apple in Japan as Mt. Fuji.
