Irwin asked:

Hi again

On page 43b it says that one can graft a tree onto a vegetable (yerek). As that is physically impossible to do, what is the gemarra saying?


Irwin, Jerusalem

The Kollel replies:

The Mishnah in Kelayim (1:8) has many examples of such grafting. One simple example is that people were wont to graft a grapevine together with a melon (possibly in order that the grape should benefit from the water of the melon, see Rav Ovadya mi'Bartenura on the Mishna ibid.).

All the best,

Yaakov Montrose
