Grafting is a process whereby a portion of one tree is joined to a rooted portion of another and subsequently unites through the mutual response of both stock and scion. Although it is possible to successfully graft and rework some kinds of fruit trees on to others a more successful "take" is assured if the botanical relationship is very close, i.e., peaches grafted on peaches, apples grafted on apples, etc.
