I've never done this with pure P.u. but the OHxF rootstocks work well for the pears that have P.u. in their heritage so I would think it would work fine. I haven't tried Pyro and didn't know it was available as an ungrafted rootstock. I am generally dissatisfied with P.u. seedlings for rootstocks as they seem to be highly variable and/or the various cultivars are variably compatible on them. Many of my grafts on P.u. seedlings runt out and that includes copies of the same cultivar from scionwood taken from the same tree and grafted onto same lot seedlings.

Subject: [NAFEX] Grafting Pyrus Ussurensis
I've got a pear question for those familiar with pear rootstocks. I'm interested in bud grafting a particular cultivar of Pyrus ussurensis and don't know if I'm limited to using Pyrus ussurensis as the rootstock. If I'm not limited to this, what are my rootstock options? I've currently got 90% of my pears on either OHxF 97, OHxF 87 or Pyrodwarf and would like to stick to these if they're compatible with the P. ussurensis.
Does anyone know?
