Fruit Tree Grafting – Compatibility Guide – What tree can we graft on what?

Μπόλιασμα Οπωροφόρων Δέντρων. Οδηγός Συμβατότητας

Below is a practical guide to which fruit tree you can graft onto which other tree.

E.g. graft a quince tree to a pear tree, a pear tree to a muskmelon tree, a water chestnut tree to a lemon, orange, kumquat or other citrus tree. The combinations are many and useful.

Before grafting a fruit tree, that is, applying any type of graft to a fruit tree, it is important to know a little about the compatibility between different fruit trees that we can use to make the grafting successful.

We cannot graft just any tree to just any other tree. There are rules of compatibility that we must follow.

Obviously, the ideal is above all to graft trees that are of the same family, i.e. one variety of apple tree to another variety of apple tree.

The best rootstocks will be trees grown from seed.

Another rule for successful grafting is to graft trees of the same genus.

This rule, however, has some very specific exceptions.

Such as cherry and sour cherry trees, which although belonging to the genus Prunus, are not compatible with other species of the genus Prunus. For example, cherry and sour cherry trees are not compatible with almond, peach and apricot trees, even though they all belong to the genus Prunus.

Cuttings from trees of different families, although sometimes able to germinate, are quickly rejected by the rootstock.

Without further delay I give you the list of the compatibility of fruit trees for propagation by cuttings.
