Cosmic Crisp is an American apple with the variety designation WA 38. The breeding was started in 1997 at Washington State University Tree Fruit Research and Extension Center in Wenatchee, Washington. Cosmic Crisp combines the best features of the existing Honeycrisp and Enterprise apples. In breeding the variety, the focus was not on the appearance, but on durability and shelf life. Cosmic Crisp is characterized mainly by uniform coloration, firm flesh and an improved shelf life.
The variety was first planted for commercial use in spring 2017, with 12 million trees pre-ordered by Washington state orchards. Cosmic Crisp will be available to consumers in 2019, after 20 years of development.
