This self-fruitful grape flourishes in our southern climate as it is native to the Southeastern United States and has been cultured here for more than 400 years
This tough native grape can be found growing along woodland edges throughout the south and is easily cultivated in home gardens.
Muscadines are hearty growers best grown on trellis structures, which should be put up before the vines are even planted. While muscadine grapes ripen from late summer through fall, the vines are best planted in spring. Space new vines at least 10’ apart and be prepared for a 3 – 4 year development period to start heavily bearing grapes.
