The muscadine grape, or just plain muscadine, grows on a large vigorous vine that climbs and clings with coiled tendrils that wrap tightly around anything they can reach. The vines are woody, and the slightly lobed triangular leaves are deciduous. Old vines can be 6" or more in diameter and grow more than 100' into the tops of the tallest pines and oaks. The sweet berries have thick black, dark purple or bronze skins, and soft musky flavored pulp. Muscadine fruits grow in small clusters rather than in the large bunches characteristic of other kinds of grapes. The skin is tough and should be discarded. Muscadines are native to Florida and much of the American South and are used in a variety of food and beverage recipes throughout the region.
Although they can tolerate some shade from high trees, muscadines will do much better and produce larger and better fruit when grown in full sun. Although they can survive periods of dry weather, fruit production will suffer if muscadines are not watered regularly. A thick layer of pine needles or leaves helps to conserve soil moisture.
