In the US, they started selling Cosmic Crisp apples that can lie for a year and not go bad



Cosmic Crisp apples, which can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a year, started selling in American stores on December 1. His selection began in 1997 and took 22 years.

Cosmic Crisp was brought out by scientists from the University of Washington, it became a hybrid of Honeycrisp and Enterprise. So far, only Washington state farmers who have received an exclusive license for the variety for a period of 10 years can grow apples.





The cost of researching and launching Cosmic Crisp in world production was about $10 million. A total of 12 million trees were planted.

As the head of the Kate Evans variety breeding program noted, the apple turned out to be strong, crunchy and juicy. According to her, the shelf life was increased due to the fact that the pulp of the fruit oxidizes very slowly — this allows you to store Cosmic Crisp in the refrigerator for 10-12 months without loss of quality.

In the USA, apples are the second most popular fruit after bananas. Washington is one of the largest suppliers of apples Golden Delicious and Red Delicious.
