On day two of the 2016 Washington State Tree Fruit Association Annual Meeting & Horticulture Expo, KOHO’s Chris Hansen had a chance to catch up with the scientist who is largely responsible for the genesis of the new apple variety Cosmic Crisp. Kate Evans is a Professor of Horticulture at the Washington State University Extension Center in Wenatchee. Professor Evans said although much of the legwork to bring the Cosmic Crisp to market has been finished, there are literally still a few roots to put down before consumers will find it widely available on store produce displays.
