I have a multi-grafted asian pear with 4 varieties, 
plus bartlett - i.e, scionwood.  I also have several 
pear rootstocks (OHxF 513), and an itchy grafting 
knife.  I believe asian pears are compatible with 
pear rootstock, correct?  Can pears be successfully 
(easily) bud grafted or is regular dormant grafting 

On a happy note, I think the two pear grafts I did
may be making it!  I was worried as the scionwood had
developed a bit in the fridge.  Two of the apples I
did... well, I'm an optimist.  Among the pears is 
Colette.  This was described glowingly to me, but I 
can't find any good info on the web.  It's
"everbearing", and as I recall didn't need to be 
ripened in cold storage.  What's a good reference 
that describes even such rarities as Colette pear and 
Swiss Gourmet apple?
