Has anyone had any success grafting the asian pear varietals onto hawthorne or mountain ash? A friend just did some pruning in his orchard and set aside a bunch of scion wood for me to play with (just got an omega grafting tool for Christmas ) and I was wondering if anyone out here has tried this combo with any success. If you have any pointers or advise fire away, I'm always interested to hear differing opinions. Any way I'll post some pics up as I start the fun!!!

I have grafted other pears onto mountain ash, but have avoided asian pear on general advice to use the most vigorous rootstocks - I use Betch and OH-97.

On mountain ash, I've been successful with aronia and shipova -- I haven't tried much else..
