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.

Discovered in Hamburg, Germany in 1918, Holstein is thought to be a seedling of Cox Orange Pippin. The medium-large, mottled orange fruit has often been a favourite at apple tastings. Highly aromatic with a delightful mixture of sweet and tart flavours and a hint of pineapple, it is prized for fresh eating and for flavourful juice. Vigorous, scab resistant tree. Holstein is a good keeper. Plant with several other varieties as it is a triploid.
