When I was a kid in southeast asia the grocery store had these perfect gorgeous amazing fuji apples. I want to replicate them in the Midwestern united states. How were they produced?

They were like the size of a grapefruit and they had a soft foam wrapper protecting each perfect apple. The skin was the most flawless pink and when you cut them open it was crisp and white and incredibly delicious. I am sure they were very expensive because we only had them very occasionally. Now I live in the midwest and there are fuji apples in the grocery store but they are not at all the same. All apples here are about the same size and none of them are really super amazing. I am thinking about planting some apple trees and trying to replicate the dream apples of my youth. How do I do this? I am thinking that I will thin the apples to a very small number per tree and really coddle them, but I know nothing about apple farming. Does anyone know how those super fancy apples were produced?
