Nothing lasts forever... especially fruit. But if you haven't already heard about the Cosmic Crisp Apple, a newbie in the realm of apples, its appeal is that it reportedly turns brown much slower than others of its kind, maintaining its gorgeous red color for much longer.
So if you're looking to buy the Cosmic Crisp Apple, here is absolutely everything you need to know.
What is the Cosmic Crisp Apple?
If you haven't heard about Cosmic Crisp Apples, they are designed to turn brown much slower than regular apples, they're crisp AF, and have a sweet juicy flavor that is unlike any other apple out there.
Basically, it's a super apple, and it's what we've all been waiting for. Full stop.
This new strain has been in the works for quite a while, according to the Cosmic Crisp Apple website.
They have been growing in the state of Washington at Washington State University over the past 20 years, and now, they are finally about to be harvested. Needless to say, I will need to get my hands on some ASAP.
Where can you buy Cosmic Crisp Apples? That's still TBD.
That's right — you can snag yourself a Cosmic Crisp apple by December 2019.
And even though the Cosmic Crisp Apple website has not yet specified where they will be sold, the brand recommends following Cosmic Crisp apple on social media for updates on the release.
These could ultimately be available at a retailer near you... and if that's the case, it's going to completely revolutionize that sad desk lunch you tote around on a regular basis. What a concept.
Oh, and the Cosmic Crisp's beauty goes far beyond its looks.
According to a press release, the Cosmic Crisp Apple is incredible to bake with. It has a high sugar content, which makes it tasty to cook with, requiring less sugar in a recipe. This also makes it caramelize easier when roasted at a high heat.
It's also juicy and medium dense, which makes it less watery, adding less liquid to pies when baking. This makes it turn into a sweeter, more syrupy texture when baked at a high heat.
So, it's a shame these babies won't be around for Thanksgiving. What about apple crisp, or even stuffing?
The possibilities are truly endless. That Cosmic delight really couldn't come sooner.
There's a lot to get excited for — with a sweeter flavor, crisp texture, and less of a chance that it will turn brown, it seems as though the CCA is the fruit of my dreams.
There are only two and a half months left until December rolls around... and like I said, I'll be waiting.
