Planting Information

 

Muscadines are a very sought after grape family originating in the South, and so very easy to grow with little to no spraying. A lot of research is now progressing on the healing resveratrol element found in the darker varieties. Though some think of all bronze fruit as scuppernongs, and all purple fruit as muscadines, the term 'muscadine' really  encompasses both the bronze and purple fruit. Female varieties must be pollinated with a Self-fertile variety. Plant in full sun at 15-20 ft. apart on strong trellises. Mulch well and water in deeply. After growth starts, select the strongest shoot and let that grow as the main trunk up to the trellis wire, pruning off the remaining branches. Our Grape & Berry Starter Tablets will insure good growth the first year. In late winter, prune back runners every year to 3-4 buds. Bearing may begin in 1-2 years.
