    I was still grafting persimmons two weeks ago. I stopped due to hot weather, (98 today). I have green buds on the last ones that I grafted.

    I’m far from an expert, but my guess is that if the bark is still slipping, and you can graft in the cooler part of the day, you possibly could still get takes. It’s about time for t-budding anyways and you’re in the south, so I’d say go for it. If it doesn’t work, you can just regraft next year. I didn’t even start grafting till June 8th this year, and I’m showing to be getting takes.

    Here’s one from this past weekend that was grafted on 6/8:

    Congrats 144 on your grafts. My grafting luck is horrible. It sucks when you are good at killing them vs growing them.

    I am not giving up yet but I hope my stubborn ways get rewarded sometime soon.
