Default Cider and Fruit juice combos?

What are some good juices to mix with before putting it in the primary? I have read in one book that pear juice reduces tart and sour flavors in cider when mixed.

Recomendations?

I've tried pear and apricot juice, they both taste like crap. Straight apple is great.

Kiwi Strawberry is great if you can find it.

I make Revenge blackberry cider every year. I have acres of blackberries. Raspberry would work. Pear juice does better by itself = perry.

I have been wanting to try to make perry but it is very difficult to find a decent amount of pear juice without having to take out a second mortgage. Every juice cocktail is sweetened with pear, but it is damn hard to find in stores.
