WSU Developing New Apple

wsu.edu

Washington State University researchers have been developing a new apple variety they expect to release to Eastern and Central Washington growers in a couple of years.

It’s called WA 38, the latest creation of WSU’s world-class tree fruit breeding program. After more than 16 years in the making, this eye-catching, dark-red beauty is ready for launch into the marketplace.
WA 38 is a cross between Enterprise and Honeycrisp and it will have a new name before it’s marketed to consumers in four or five years.

This is the first apple from the WSU apple breeding program to be commercialized. Funding for the research comes from orchards through the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission.

WSU hopes to have 30,000 trees available to growers in 2016 and 300,000 by 2017
