muscadine grape vine

Vitis rotundifolia Michx


The muscadine grape is native to the southeastern United States & was the first native grape species to be cultivated in North America. The natural range of muscadine grapes extends from Delaware to central Florida and occurs in all states along the Gulf Coast to east Texas. This is the VINE that grows this large as it usually can overwinter & can grow in the wild to the tallest of our trees in Florida. I have eaten the fruit before but it rather sour... Birds & squirrels seem to enjoy eating these fruits when ripe.


Located in Ocala National Forest in Central Florida. I've also seen plant in Canton, GA where one can buy commercial Jam & Wine made from this grape.


Vine picture is from Jan., 2015. I will take pics of leafs, flowers & fruits later this spring & summer & post them here.
