Move over, Honeycrisp: New apple to debut at grocery stores
Oh, good, thanks for posting this - I had the article from The Province on my table, was going to get around to posting a link to it. I can't find the article on The Province website, but it cites Harriet Alexander at the London Sunday Telegraph. Here is an article from there: Meet Cosmic Crisp - the apple with the most expensive marketing campaign in history.
I don't think the world needs anything better than Honeycrisp, but in late spring before peaches are ready, Honeycrisp are no longer crisp. The bit that interested me -

According to the article in the original post:
Has anyone in the Vancouver area encountered this new apple?
Yes, we had it last week. We thought it turned brownish relatively quickly. Taste was good, it was a "solid" apple.
Where did you buy it from?
I don't think it's available locally yet. Might have to cross the border to taste it!
I just noticed this week's T&T Supermarket flyer is advertising this apple @ $3.88/lb.
Yep, expensive as all get out to begin with. I imagine it'll stay at a premium price.
