Muscadine grapes are tasty native plants that can be grown easily in most of Florida.
Muscadines are harvested as single berries instead of in bunches and have thicker-skinned fruit than bunch-type grapes. They have very few insect or disease problems.
These grapes are adapted to Florida’s sandy soils, and container-grown plants can be planted at anytime.
Muscadine grapes are a vining crop that will need a support, such as a trellis or arbor.
Your grapes will mature in August or early September and should be picked from the vine and stored in a cool place if not used right away.
Use your delicious Florida grapes in jellies, jams, or make some great wine!
