Title: Re: [NAFEX] Questions about grafting
FWIW, I've chip budded pawpaws with nearly 100% success.  No reason it wouldn't work with dormant scionwood and actively growing stock.
-Lon Rombough

Paw paws appanently don't t-bud from what I've read.  They do whip graft easly.  
Be sure and wait until the leaves for pushing though.
I whip grafted about a dozen this year.

I am able to force the bud in May as I t-bud(citrus)in April.
