A "second" will most likely have several cuts visible on the trunk. These are from low growing branches that were removed too late in the season. This means they have not yet had time to heal over properly. Lac Balsam has been applied to all cuts.

This large beautiful apple originating near Boskoop, Holland in about 1856, was first known as 'Schoener von Boskoop'. In Europe, where it is still a popular commercial variety, Boskoop is recognized
for it's superior culinary qualities, but in addition to cooking and baking it also works well for cider and fresh eating. The rich, but sprightly flavour has a sharp, clean, lemon tinge that will wake up your taste buds. It will mellow and sweeten during storage and can easily be kept all winter. In recent years it has been discovered that Boskoop has a higher phytonutrient content than most apples. Vigorous, scab resistant tree is very productive, but often takes a little longer to begin bearing. Plant Boskoop with several other varieties as it is a triploid.
