Dr. Susan Brown at Cornell University

Currently, Crunch Time has a licensing agreement with Cornell University which grants them specific rights for naming, growing, marketing, and selling the two recently developed apple varieties (SnapDragon and RubyFrost), developed by Cornell University apple breeder Dr. Susan Brown.

Cornell University, a world leader in apple breeding, has released 66 different apple varieties since the late 1890’s. Popular commercial varieties include Cortland, Macoun, Empire and Jonagold.

Cornell’s apple development and breeding program goals include improving overall quality of apples, providing longer shelf life and to continue to take measures to become more environmentally friendly.
