I did a lot of this years ago when I first learned to graft well and had access to lots of cultivars. The biggest problem that I encountered was not the time od harvest, but the time of bloom, it meant that I could not properly spray, because the blossoms were in different stages. Another big problem is the growth rate - some cultivars grow much faster and morre vigorously, so the tree becomes very misshapen. On the good side is that there is very good pollination.
