My understanding is that Cosmic Crisp will be an open variety in seven years.
Numbers we were quoted for "all in" establishment costs per acre was $60,000 on a large planting. No land acquisition costs. Land prep, trees, support, tractors, irrigation, machinery buildings and housing for H2A labor included. I do not know if overhead towards packing facility was factored in.
