Cosmic Crisp apple
« on: December 01, 2019, 04:20:26 AM »
So, what’s the story on this new variety? The big news in Oz is that it can keep for up to 12 months in the fridge😳😳😳😳. Only being grown in Washington State for the next 10 years with 12 million planted already. Must be good.

And a McDonald's cheeseburger can stay in a cupboard for 10 years. When microbes aren't interested in food, that's generally a bad sign for nutritional worth (or toxicity).

This apple sounds like good news for the grocery chains, not so much for the home gardener.

There's no such thing as "ultra tropical"

Apples can already be stored for a year or more in specific conditions not available to general consumers (low oxygen + cold).  I assume this would help grocery stores and consumers.  I've tried every type of apple available and Pink Lady/Cripps Pink is still the best, though the new Sweet Tango type is very good too.

Your grocery store apples are already over a year old when you buy them.
