Pawpaws graft pretty easily. I have used several methods and get similar 
results. Chip budding is the most efficient use of budwood. Whip and tongue 
works well. Currently I am using a modified side graft that gets very good 
cambium contact, even when scion wood is much smaller than the rootstock.
