About Muscadine Grapes

  • Muscadine grapes are native to the Southeastern United States including Central Florida.
  • There are approximately 8,000 – 10,000 acres of various muscadine grape vines planted in North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.
  • Certain varieties flourish in Florida and are tolerant of high humidity, pests, and diseases. Our grapes are grown using only natural pesticides and fungicides.
  • The Florida total grape growing industry is estimated to be 500 to 800 acres.
  • Most of Florida’s production is sold at a farmers market and u-pick operations.
  • The four main uses of muscadine grapes are (1) jellies and jam, (2) juice, (3) fresh or dried fruit and last but not least (4) wine.
  • Muscadines, especially their skins are high in Ellagic acid, Quercetin, Trans-resveratrol. Studies indicate these antioxidants in humans influence cell to cell signaling, have anti-inflammatory properties and anti-cancer properties.
  • Muscadines have any extra set of chromosomes making it difficult to cross with other grape cultivars.
  • Varieties of muscadines occur both as females and vines that have both male and female flowers. Pollinated female varieties generally produce larger but less fruit.
  • Harvest season starts in mid-August and extends to late October depending on weather conditions.
  • Most varieties of muscadines are some shade of bronze or some shade of dark purple.
  • All varieties referred to as Scuppernongs are Muscadines but not all Muscadines are Scuppernongs.
  • Muscadines freeze well so their unique flavor can be enjoyed throughout the year.
