HEllo,

    I'm no expert, but here's my opinion.

1. Grafted plants
2. Air-Layer plants
3. Cutting plants
4. seedling plants

I totally agree,
from my experience there are some air-layered fruiting quicker than graft, but they will need to be big + grafting  roots. It is a very efficient method.

My grafted Malay apple tree bore lots of fruit in four years after planted.
