When should the Fuji apple trees that you have in stock be harvested. I heard that in zone 5 Fuji apples are not ready for picking until November and that a September Wonder Fuji does better in this area?

Fuji is one of the last apples to ripen, in the range of maybe 180 days (depending on the weather of course.) The September Fuji should ripen about a month earlier than the regular Fuji. I would suggest you consult with your local Penn State extension and see which apple varieties they are recommending for your local area. They can also help you develop a preventive spray and maintenance plan for the varieties you select. Enjoy your apple trees!
