44. Grafting is done to select a tree for it's production, and put it on a sturdy rootstock

There are several apple rootstocks, some cause dwarf or semi-dwarf trees. With walnuts, an english walnut variety is most often grafted on a Black Walnut rootstock because they are more disease resistant. L. Burbank crossed an English walnut with a Black walnut and produced a "Paradox" walnut. To hybridize is to naturally mix genetic material. You can not Naturally mix fish with tomato plants, but they have done that with Genetic Engineering.
