I am investigating the build of a hot callus pipe system for next winter.  From what I have seen Hazel Nut, Pawpaw, Pear and Persimmon are candidates for this method.  
My land is too small for the other nut trees that can be done. Anyone know of any other fruits (Vines, Bushes Trees) that can be enhanced through hot callusing?

Stone fruits come to mind.

I've heard of something similar where it's done outside just waiting for some hot weather days in a row.

Sounds interesting, would love to see some pictures if you give it a try.

Here is a paper showing the device and how to use.  Should do in December.
Something to build next fall.
