Orin (王林) / Japanese Apple
Direct from Ota Wholesale Market in Tokyo
By professional buyer, picking the quality that is most worth for the price this season.
Just like many other countries in the world, apples are a popular fruit in Japan, but compared to ones you would typically expect to see in the West, there are quite different.
Japanese apples are cultivated in regions with rich climates such as Aomori and Nagano prefectures, featuring diverse varieties like Fuji, Beni-Red, and King Ring.
The cold climate and unique soil conditions contribute to a well-balanced combination of sweetness and acidity, offering a delicious taste that varies with the seasons.
These apples are known for being juicy with a pleasant sweetness and satisfying crunch, and while the specific varieties and flavor profiles may differ by region, Japanese apples are generally recognized for their high quality and deliciousness.
What is Orin (王林)?
Representative of Yellow-Green Apples.
With strong sweetness and a rich fragrance.
Named to signify 'the king among apples,' this yellow-green variety gives an impression of strong acidity, but it boasts a powerful sweetness and a crisp, light texture as its distinctive features.
Kinglin, despite appearing to have strong acidity, actually carries a predominant sweetness, accompanied by a refreshing and crisp mouthfeel, leaving a clean aftertaste.
Perfect for a refreshing start in the morning or a quick pick-me-up.

The History of Japanese Apple
It is believed that apples were first introduced to Japan from China around the year 918.
During this time the fruit was a lot smaller than today's standards and were mainly used for culinary use.
They were also given as offerings as Buddhist temples. Everything changed in 1871, when a large surplus of varieties was imported from the United States and distributed across the country.
Regions like Aomori located in the north of Japan took a liking to growing all these apples as they were able to flourish in the plummeting temperatures while other produce like rice could not.
As the cultivation of apples continued to expand over the years, new types were being developed and produced, notably to increase its size.
At present day it has gotten to the point where Japanese apples are usually larger in size and a lot sweeter than Western ones.
