A Native Grape with Big, Juicy Flavor!
If you live in the southeast, you are probably already familiar with the deliciousness of wild muscadine grapes. Southland Muscadine (Vitis rotundifolia ‘Southland’) brings that great flavor and hardiness from the southern wild to your home garden. This is a classic grape vine that produces clusters of large, deep purple grapes. The fruit is tangy-sweet and juicy. Use it to make great home-made wine, jellies and jams. They are delicious snacks eaten straight out of hand, but try chilling them a few hours in the fridge for an addictive treat!
These are fast-growing vines, so use them to provide deep shade on your trellis, gazebo or arbor in no time. The big leaves put on a colorful show in autumn and the peeling bark provides great winter interest. These easy fruit-bearing vines laugh at humidity that will kill other grapes and handle temperature extremes without a fuss.
These are native to southeastern states from Delaware to Florida and through Texas and Oklahoma. They are self-fertile, so you only need one, but trust us, you’re going to want more than one!
