The new apple, previously known as simply WA 38, finally has a name: Cosmic Crisp. Could this be a new contender for the Honeycrisp? We will have to wait until 2019 to see as the apple will not be widely available to consumers for the next 5 years. So, what’s in a name? Well, for this apple, one of the outstanding attributes of the variety is its crisp texture. “Crisp” also links the Washington State University (WSU) apple to its parent, Honeycrisp.
