My experience is as long as the wood is in the "spring slip", you can 
successfully graft. 

In this area I can still graft persimmon, bark is starting to lose slip, but 
will go out totally shortly. My guess is further south already out, north 
maybe two weeks longer. My guess again is apple will be nearly the same. 
Topworking now, go for it.

Once had an apple with 10 varieties on it. Problem was it was on M9 and 
didn't have it staked, blew over!
