grafting pawpaw with flower buds
« on: April 18, 2021, 06:13:50 AM »
is it possible to graft pawpaw scionwood with flower buds on it?
is there a growing bud left if I remove the flower bud?
I'm not familiar with pawpaw grafting, I know it it possible with other fruit trees(apricots, peaches,..)

thanks!

Absolutely - you can still graft with this. You are correct, there are vegetative/growing buds under the flower buds.

It might not be IDEAL but it is commonly done, since sometimes that's all you have to work with.

Good luck!

PS yes - you should remove the flower buds themselves prior to grafting
