Step aside, Red Delicious, Gala and Pink Lady -- after 22 years of perfecting, a new apple called the Cosmic Crisp has hit the market, advertised by its Canadian creator as crispier, juicier and longer-lasting than any other apple on the market.
They call it the Cosmic Crisp. It's not a video game, a superhero or the title of a Grateful Dead song. It's a new variety of apple.
The Canadian homestead where John McIntosh discovered the McIntosh apple is up for sale with a list price of $875,000.
Five types of apples, once thought to be extinct, have been rediscovered in northern Idaho and eastern Washington.
