This just in! Cosmic Crisp Apples have just touched down at all Mollie Stone’s Markets!
The Cosmic Crisp® apple varietal is the remarkable result of 20 years of study and research by Washington State University’s world-class tree fruit breeding program. Cosmic Crisp® brand apples are a cross between Enterprise and Honeycrisp.
The large, juicy, red apple has a firm and crisp texture that provides ample sweetness, making it an excellent eating and baking apple. It is naturally slow to brown when cut and maintains its texture and flavor in storage for more than a year.
The name,“Cosmic,” references the apple’s starburst-like lenticels (bursts), which reminded them of the cosmos. “Crisp” links to its parent, the Honeycrisp. This sweet, delicious, crisp apple has officially been harvested by growers throughout Washington and are now available for a limited time only at all Mollie Stone’s Markets.
