The Comic Crisp apple has been in development for over 20 years. Bruce Barritt, a horticulturist, wanted a firm, crisp, and juicy apple and after decade of researching and experimenting, the Cosmic Crisp was born. He worked alongside Washington State University’s tree fruit breeding program to cross-pollinate, taste, and test.

Washington State has five main growing regions for apples: Okanogan, Lake Chelan, Wenatchee, Columbia River, and Yakima Valley. They all share the same ideal growing conditions that lay the foundation for growing the world’s best apples. According to Cosmic Crisp’s website, “The average size of a Washington apple orchard is about 100 acres, but some cover as many as 5,000 acres and employ 300 or more farm workers year-round.” Cosmic Crisp apples grow in all five regions.
