About Cosmic Crisp®

  • Availability: October through April
  • Did You Know? A natural Gala/Splendour cross, Pacific Rose™ gets its signature pink hue from Splendour (a heritage apple variety from New Zealand), and its unique taste profile combines both parents’ flavors to perfection.

Cosmic Crisp® apples have been in development for over 20 years. After all, it takes time to work hand in hand with Mother Nature to classically breed the right varieties until you find The One.

Bruce Barritt, horticulturist and developer of the Cosmic Crisp®, set out on a mission to fill a produce void for a firm, crisp, and juicy apple. After decades of cross-pollinating, tasting, and testing, along with research and development with Washington State University’s world-class tree fruit breeding program, the Cosmic Crisp® apple was discovered.

WSU researchers, including pome fruit breeder Kate Evans are proud to have introduced a new branded apple to the market that is exclusive to Washington State. The Cosmic Crisp® apple has earned high marks from consumers and chefs for its perfectly balanced flavor, crisp texture, juiciness and striking color.
