A friend has a wild pear (pyrus spp.) that bears inedible fruit. To
help him out, I grafted scionwood from my pears onto his wild pear. His
tree accepted all of my grafts. Several of those grafts were from my Ure
Pear. When I saw the abundance of edible fruit on his tree, I grafted his
wild pear scionwood onto my Ure but the Ure rejected all grafts. That is
curious: How can scions be accepted onto a tree whose scions are rejected
by the other? I guess that is one of the mysteries of Nature.
