Does anyone have experience grafting pears to hawthorns?  I am
particularly interested in results with hawthorn species suited to USDA
zone 9b (North Central Florida).   Are there particular interstems that
have proved useful?

Also, I am developing a list of pear varieties that produce with 300 hours
chilling or less. Any contributions to the list would be appreciated.
