The new variety of apple, Cosmic Crisp, from the US has landed in China

In the eastern foothills of the Cascade Range in Washington State, the climate is dry, and the cool mountain spring water irrigates the endless apple orchards. The natural environment is perfect for producing high-quality Washington apples. Apple growers in Washington State have always adhered to natural cooperative farming, constantly improving planting techniques and expanding apple varieties. They work hard all day to make sure every apple is carefully cared for.

In Washington State, the new high-density planting has been widely promoted. Using dwarf trees to increase the growth rate, the fruits are more convenient to pick, and this improves the speed and safety of harvesting as well. The harvest is quickly sent to the packaging factory, and the apples are strictly screened by equipment with artificial intelligence technologies. Eventually, high-quality apples of the same size and color are packed into boxes for sale around the world. The remainder are stored in cold storage or modified air storage to ensure that consumers can eat delicious Washington apples all year round.

In addition to the classic Red delicious apple, Gala apples, Green Apples, and Ambrosia apples from Washington have landed in the Chinese market. The Cosmic Crisp apple has also landed in the Chinese market after 20 years of painstaking research and development. This variety of apple can only be grown in Washington State now.  After being stored in cold storages with leading technology for a period of time, the apple will get improved sweetness, and its flavor will be further improved as well, which is especially suitable for Chinese consumers who love the sweet taste.

There are also many club varieties of Washington apples, such as Envy and Pacific Rose, which are already popular in the Chinese market. There are so many Washington apple varieties, and there is always one that can satisfy your discerning taste buds.
