Cosmic Crisp arrives


January 30, 2020

Cosmic Crisps on display at Safeway in Pullman.

The Cosmic Crisp apple is front and center at Safeway in Pullman Jan. 24. The cosmic crisp is a hybrid between Honeycrisp and Enterprise apples. It was created to have the texture and juiciness of the Honeycrisp and the late ripening and shelf life of the Enterprise. The Cosmic Crisp became available to consumers in 2019, after 20 years of breeding and development. This variety of apple is only available to Washington-based growers for at least 10 years; WSU owns the patent.
