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.

Alfred has been around for quite some time (developed at Geneva, NY, and released in 1965) and although fruit size is rather small for commercial consideration, it is still one of the best bets for the home orchard. The late blooming tree is vigorous and hardy with a well established reputation of being tops in the apricot kingdom for consistent, reliable production. Bright orange, pink blushed fruit with juicy, fine-grained flesh has sweet, rich flavour.
