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.

A little known variety that deserves more recognition, this Minnesota selection is a Wealthy x Dolgo crab cross. Child-sized apples are bright scarlet over yellow, with a sweet, somewhat nutty flavour. Great for fresh eating, preserving or cider. Highly scab resistant, compact but slightly spreading tree is an excellent pollenizer with snowy white blossoms.
