Two stakes of european medlar tree are
prepared, reducing them in bevel by both sides with the knife to graft.
Next they are introduced well in the longitudinal section in V of the host,
fitting them so that the external crusts of both stakes contact and they
are aligned with the crust of the host, in order that both cambiums merges.

This type of
graft can be done from half-full to end of Winter in all the arboreal rosaceus plants of caducous
leaf in hibernation: pear tree, apple tree, cherry tree, almond tree,
apricot, plum tree, sour cherry, european medlar tree, quince, azarole,
hawthorn, service tree, nashi, etc.. and in any other tree of caducous
leaf and hard wood: khaki, pistachio, jujube, rivet, elm tree, etc...
Also it is
possible to be done in trees and shrubs of perennial leaf from end of
Winter to end of Spring, changing the stake by a small branch with leaves
and covering the graft with a transparent plastic bag during several weeks,
to avoid the dehydration.

this one it is the result. The stake of the left apparently goes more
delayed in the sprout, because their terminal buds are floral with a cocoon
in each one of them. I had to take advantage of this stake because I took
the stakes of another graft that I did three years ago and had few branches
where to choose. They are of a old variety of european medlar tree, not
cultivated in the actuality. I saved the variety taking a small stake of an
old dying european medlar
tree, that my grandfather grafted 70 years ago on a wild hawthorn. I
grafted it on "a modern" european medlar tree that gives very great but totally insipid
fruits. After three years, the graft already had sufficient branches and I
have been able to take stakes to reproduce it by graft, not to lose the
