Compatible hosts for the different fruit trees:

 

Here I put a list of the more common compatible hosts for the mediterranean

and subtropical climate fruit trees. In all the cases the best host is always, save exceptions, the franc tree born of seed of the same species that the graft. The few exceptions are, for example, the quince that are the best host for the common

pear tree, the lemon tree that is the best host for kumquat and limequat, the

Pistacia lentiscus and Pistacia terebinthus that are excellent hosts for the pistachio nut tree, etc...
