Plum trees are a fast and easy way to do this yourself. Texas A&M http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/propagation/propagation.html lists so many wonderful ways to do this. Have fun - go slow and just enjoy the wonders of grafting. For me and even with little kids I have found plum trees are the fastest and best trees to start with they will take more abuse then most fruit trees.

Oh it is so much fun... be careful... once you have the bug it is hard to not want to just cut away!

LOL... but first I have to have something to cut! So far, just berries of several kinds, but a tree order pending...
