Muscadine grapes are native to the Southeast US. They love hot humid weather and don’t suffer from the diseases that plague european grapes. They are care free, super vigorous, have huge fruit, and are great for landscaping since the leaves stay glossy and attractive all summer long. So the downside… they tend to have thicker skins and seeds. The non-self-fertile female varieties have the best flavor (the others are good too), but need a self-fertile variety for pollination. Fruit is either black (dark purple) or bronze, and some sources say that you need a bronze self-fertile to pollinate a black female variety, and you need a black self-fertile to pollinate a bronze female variety.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
