It might, or it might not.  It depends on the cause of the hard spots.  If the cause is viral or nutritional (calcium deficiency, for instance), the problem will likely show up in the scion cultivars as well.  If is something else, the scion variety may escape or suffer reduced injury. 

Maybe not too helpful, but some things could be addressed to reduce their possible influence, like calcium sprays.  I guess it's worth a try to at least topwork part of the tree and see what happens.

> I have three Harbin pear trees and would like to experiment with some top

I also have an old pear tree, no idea of the name. Small, ripens late
August, early Sep, doesn't keep even when picked off the tree. Texture
the greatest but the flavour is very good. It is self fertile. This tree
been giving more & more fruit with hard spots the past few years.

If I graft scions from this tree to the Harbins, will this problem also
occur on the grafted limbs?

Zone 4, Southern Quebec near Lake Champlain.
