Move over, Honeycrisp: New apple to debut at grocery stores
In this photo taken Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2019, a worker snips off the hard stem on a Cosmic Crisp apple, a new variety and the first-ever bred in Washington state, just after pulling it off a tree at an orchard in Wapato, Wash. Workers cut the stem below the top of every Cosmic Crisp apple to prevent damage to the fruit during transportation and storage. The Cosmic Crisp, available beginning Dec. 1, is expected to be a game changer in the apple industry. Already, growers have planted 12 million Cosmic Crisp apple trees, a sign of confidence in the new variety. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
