Muscadines (vitus rotundifolia) are native to the Southeastern United States and grow well in hot humid climates. Muscadines are sometimes referred to as Bullace, Scuppernong, Fox grapes, and Swamp grapes. Muscadine berries can range from bronze to dark purple when ripe, depending on the variety. Common varieties used in winemaking are Noble, Carlos, and Magnolia. Unlike any other grape Muscadines have a very distinct taste and fragrance which is apparent in any food product derived from it. Jelly, juice and wine are commonly produced from this wonderful fruit.
The first European Settlers in America were introduced to the Muscadine by the Native Americans. It was discovered by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1584 and it is believed that some of the first settlers planted the “Mother Vine”, which is still living today in North Carolina.
