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.

Some of the most dependable and productive apricot varieties available for either commercial growers or home gardeners have come out of the Harrow Research Station. One of the best is Hargrand, introduced in 1980. Firm yellow-orange fruit is typically very large–up to 6 cm (2.5"). High quality, freestone flesh with fine texture and outstanding flavour. Like all the Harrow series, Hargrand features a late (for apricots) bloom period and impressive all-around disease resistance.
