There's a new kid on the block in the produce aisle.  At least new to me.  The Cosmic Crisp apple.  Excellent apple.  Firm, very sweet, juicy, and a moderate degree of tartness.  At first bite the tartness is not evident but as you munch your way around one of these beauties it becomes more pronounced. Give them a try.

Might be GMO, might just be a hybrid?

Cosmic Crisp® is a cross of the Enterprise and Honeycrisp varieties.

Had to google it.  As bill-e stated above, non-gmo. They are the product of classical breeding.

Taking a side trip here on food safety.  I peel my apples before consuming. Have been doing that since the Alar scare of the 1980's.  Fruits are sprayed with pesticides, and  preservatives such as paraffin and  wax and lots of other stuff with the potential for deleterious effects on health.  I dont buy fruits that cannot be peeled. And I dont eat raw vegetables for the same reasons. I want my vegetables cooked.  Have not eaten a salad in decades.

Not that it's of great significance, but I take pretty much a diametrically opposed approach.

Wise choices. you can take your tumbnail and scrape the wax off an apple. That's not healthful but it keeps the apple from going bad sooner.

Classical breeding is just slow genetic modification.

I scrub the wax off my lemons and limes before using the peels in cocktails, and the zest in foods. That apple sounds great. I will check our grocers bins next time in.

I wish folks in the apple biz would put out produce for shipping that is "certified" tree ripened and picked within a couple of weeks of the shelf. We don't have a lot of apple orchards around us anymore. brad
