Like most apple trees, a Cosmic crisp apple tree has dark green leaves with only one lobe with an elliptical shape. There are three sizes of this tree: mini dwarf, dwarf, and semi-dwarf. The mini dwarf tends to reach a height of six foot while the semi-dwarf usually reaches around 16 feet in height. The mini-dwarf only gets around six feet.

No matter which apple tree you grow out of the aforementioned ones, your tree requires routine watering especially when the water is dry. Ideally, you should water your tree once per week. The watering should provide the tree with water that saturates the ground about seven inches down. This ensures the roots receive the water.

Since the Cosmic crisp apples are only available in one location or you have to have them shipped, you may want to store what you have for a few months or longer to ensure you deserve these delicious creations.

Apples can help you better manage your blood sugar levels in type II diabetics and people in general. People who regularly consume Cosmic crisp apples may have a lowered risk for some cancers and heart diseases because these apples have antioxidants, which protect again oxidative damage that leads to heart disease and cancer. Plus, apples consist of fiber, which is heart healthy. It regulates your digestive tract as well. Apples also have potassium, magnesium, and vitamin B6.

The Honeycrisp, as mentioned above, is a hybrid created at the University of Minnesota in the 1960s, but which only recently became increasingly popular due to the large cell size that produces the apple's storied crispness. Notoriously easy to bruise, the Cosmic Crisp is considered an improvement on it in most ways.

While paired with cheese, the Gala wins out; with peanut butter, the Honeycrisp might be best. But in terms of an overall eating apple, the Cosmic Crisp is the winner. Perhaps all that money and focus groups were worth it.

Still, one arena in which the Cosmic Crisp (and all these apples) lose out is in it being a monoculture. Like all these big consumer crops, all the trees are clones of each other, and you can tell nothing of the origin in which these fruits were produced. Every Cosmic Crisp is identical to every other one. This is "normal" in contemporary industrial agriculture, but it is not ideal. And it is probably not "the future" of agriculture, as the Times opined.

A new and exciting variety of apple, it was developed from a cross between enterprise, known for its disease resistance/ ease of growing and Honeycrisp, known for its very good flavor quality. It is the best of both worlds, it has a sweet and sharp flavor to it, best for fresh eating. Harvest fruit in September. Flowering group 4, would need pollination from different variety flowering groups 3 or 4 to set fruit. Hardy to zone 5. This variety cannot be shipped outside of Washington due to patent protection.

I bought four of them Friday night (06 JAN 2023), and shared one with my wife. I rinsed and wiped it dry with a paper towel then quartered the apple. The crunch was great, but the taste reminded me of having my mouth washed out with soap when I was in 1st grade. I felt bad for the grower, as well as the tree. Best of luck, the Cosmos is not ready for the Cosmic Tango.

One of the goals of the Cosmic Crisp apple was to be an available alternative to more popular autumnal apples that can bridge the gap between seasons. In order to accomplish this, quite a lot of apples needed to be grown. In fact, a considerable amount of orchard space was dedicated to the Cosmic Crisp before it was even released to the public. This was quite a gamble, as the apple could have been a major flop and it would take many years to switch varieties. Hence the ten million dollar price tag in marketing. This would ensure the apple trees being grown years in advance would have a market. In Washington State, the Cosmic Crisp was licensed to 24 different growers, as a result you are going to get 24 slightly different apples. On the large vs. small front, apples grow different sizes on the same tree, so that could be less to do with how they are grown and more to do with how they were sorted.

I just ate a cosmic crisp apple. It was crisp, attractive, juicy and sweet but, as with so many apples lately, lacked apple flavor. I grew up in Washington state and lived in Wenatchee for a time and can remember apples having a distinct apples flavor.

I first learned about the cosmic crisp after listening to my favorite apple rating, scrumping and sports podcast. I finally had the opportunity to try one and I would rate it as slightly above average when eaten by itself. However, they are out of this world when eaten as a topping on my homemade pancake waffles.

Get ready for a new kind of apple. It's called Cosmic Crisp, and farmers in Washington state, who grow 70 percent of the country's apples, are planting these trees by the millions. The apples themselves, dark red in color with tiny yellow freckles, will start showing up in stores in the fall of 2019.

As we watch, a slow-moving tractor slices open the bare earth, and two men carefully lower delicate tree roots into the opening, one tree every three feet. These are among the first of about 400,000 Cosmic Crisp trees that McDougall and Sons expects to plant over the next few years. Across the state, 12 million of the trees have been ordered. That first wave of plantings will deliver about 5 million 40-pound boxes of Cosmic Crisp apples to grocery stores.

Many potential alternatives, though, have problems of their own. Honeycrisp is loved by consumers but is difficult to grow. Many other hot new apples, like Opal or Jazz, are only available to small clubs of growers.

Cosmic Crisp, though, is open to every farmer in Washington state. The tree is vigorous and produces lots of fruit. Also, it's ready for harvest at that same time as Red Delicious, which is a crucial consideration for big-time apple growers who are trying to coordinate the harvest of several different varieties.

Barritt and his colleagues duplicated it the old-fashioned way, cutting buds from its branches and splicing, or grafting, those buds onto existing apple tree roots. The buds grew into new WA 38 trees.

Washington state hired a private company to handle the commercial launch of the new apple. They named it Cosmic Crisp because the apple's flecks of yellow reminded someone of stars in the sky. Farmers finally got a chance to plant these trees in their own orchards this spring. For now, it's only available to farmers in Washington, since they helped support the breeding program that created it.

Twenty-plus years after horticulturist Bruce Barritt took pollen from the Honeycrisp and placed it on the stigma of the Enterprise to produce seed, boxes of the WA 38 hybrid apple will arrive in grocery stores nationwide this December. Notably, waiting for test trees to mature and produce fruit takes such a long time that the 22 years that passed while the Cosmic Crisp WA 38 moved from cross to launch was considered quick.

The apple that is being called #AppleofBigDreams is showing up at stores across the country. Find out where you can get a hold of a Cosmic Crisp apple - the new Honeycrisp cross from Washington, near you.

The actual flavor of the apple is good. It has a modern apple flavor. I prefer some of my favorite heirloom varieties over this one in flavor, most of which you can only find at an apple orchard or farmer's market. For a apple that is at the grocery store I would pick Cosmic Crisp over some others including Honeycrisp.

Then once an apple is deemed viable for the market place, it takes time for the trees to be planted and production to start. For the next 7 years you are going to see a huge increase in the amount of Cosmic Crisp apples available.

The little dots on the skin of the apple resemble stars in the sky. The crisp part is well because it's a crisp apple related to the Honeycrisp. People are really attracted to crisp apples. It was probably the number 1 question I got about any apple when I worked at Whole Foods Market.

If you refrigerate your Cosmic Crisp apples you can get up to a year of use out of them! They are known as a great storage apple, more so than Honeycrisp. While we have Honeycrisp pretty much available year round now, the quality of the apple is poor once the winter months hit.

And they also tend to get black spots on them, which is called bitter pit. Some apples that go into storage to be sold later end up bad before they make it to the store. I think this is one of the reasons why all these new apples are coming out because Honeycrisp is really a pain in the butt.

I tried the cosmic crisp apple for the first time today and it is such a delicious apple and is my new favorite apple. It's very juicy, crisp, sweet and not tooooooooooooo tart. Many apples are too tart for my taste. This is a great apple. I found it at Food King grocery store in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I am so happy to find such a perfect apple for my taste. Thank you to the people who created it. Keep up the good work.

Already, growers have planted 12 million Cosmic Crisp apple trees, a sign of confidence in the new variety. While only 450,000 40-pound boxes will be available for sale this year, that will jump to more than 2 million boxes in 2020 and more than 21 million by 2026.

Cosmic Crisps are a cross between the disease-resistant Enterprise and the popular, crunchy Honeycrisp varieties. The Honeycrisp, nicknamed "Moneycrisp" by some growers, was the latest apple to spark a big buzz in the United States when it was introduced a couple of decades ago. It was developed by the University of Minnesota. 041b061a72
