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.

Introduced in 1979, this disease resistant selection from Trenton, ON has largely remained unknown. Some U-pick setups, especially organic ones such as Avalon Orchards, find they can never produce enough to satisfy their loyal customers who insist on Trent. A touch of mild, pleasant, pear flavour comes through in the firm, very crisp, cream-coloured flesh of this large, dark red apple. Storage is excellent. Organic growers also appreciate it's exceptional insect resistance which is possibly due to it's slightly thicker skin.
