Muscadine Grapes

Muscadine Grapes

Muscadine Grapes are a real southern delicacy. These hardy grapes can be eaten fresh, pressed for juice, or made into wine. The native wild vines can be found all over the southeast, producing food for wildlife and any humans who are lucky enough to find them. While the wild grapes tend to have intense and even spicy flavors, our named varieties come with bigger, sweeter, and more plentiful fruit! Muscadine grapes are one of the strongest growing fruits in North Florida and South Georgia. As long as you have a fence, pergola, or trellis to support them, you can start growing these tasty summer treats now.

We’ve curated a collection of the best information available to help you learn all about growing grapes at home.
