Cosmic Crisp® Apple
Branded and sold worldwide as Cosmic Crisp®, WSU’s latest apple variety is WA 38. The fruit of more than two decades of research and bred especially for Washington growers, Cosmic Crisp® made the largest apple launch in history in fall 2019.
Large, round, crisp, and juicy, the apple was named for its star-like lenticels, or pores, on its bright red skin. Featured by Good Housekeeping, Bon Appétit, and many other outlets and influencers, and enjoyed by millions as an eating apple, Cosmic Crisp®’s versatility lets it shine in nearly any product or recipe.
