Nesbitt Muscadine

Vitis rotundifolia

Full Sun to Part Shade. Black seeded fruit with excellent flavor, long ripening period. Very vigorous, super disease resistant. Self fertile.

Muscadine grapes are native to the Southeast US. They love hot humid weather and don’t suffer from the diseases that plague european grapes. They are care free, super vigorous, have huge fruit, and are great for landscaping since the leaves stay glossy and attractive all summer long. So the downside… they tend to have thicker skins and seeds. The non-self-fertile female varieties have the best flavor (the others are good too), but need a self-fertile variety for pollination. Fruit is either black (dark purple) or bronze, and some sources say that you need a bronze self-fertile to pollinate a black female variety, and you need a black self-fertile to pollinate a bronze female variety. We are just on the northern edge of their range. We offer varieties that are bred for more cold hardiness and that have survived above the ground for us. These are large vigorous vines, so plant 15’ to 20’ apart

. North American native plant.

wild Plum

(Prunus Americana)

Full Sun. Full size on own roots (not grafted), plant two for pollination. disease resistant

These seedling trees are extremely disease-resistant and set bumper crops of golf-ball sized fruit every two years.  In between years get a smaller crop.  The fruit is red-skinned and yellow fleshed and glows when the sunlight hits it!  It is delicious eaten straight off the tree with a slight astringency that comes through delightfully in wine made from these fruits.  The roots will sucker so if you do not mow around them, they will eventually form a clonal “grove” of plums for you! .

Triple Crown Thornless Blackberry

(Rubus fruticosus)

Full Sun to Part Shade. Sweet, Trailing type, extremely vigorous

Trailing type, needs trellis. Our most productive (per plant) of the sweet thornless types. Large berries, fast growth, smaller seeds.   Blackberries will tip root and give you many more plants if you fail to tie them to the trellis.  Canes can grow 10’ or more but best to tip them at 4′-7′.   Blooms very late so avoids the occasional freezes that can hurt the blossoms of earlier blackberries.  Blackberries do well in almost any soil in our region.  Mid to late-season ripening.   Space 5’ apart in row.  Self fertile. . North American native plant.

(Rubus idaeus)

Full Sun. everbearing, sweet yellow berries

Yellow raspberries have the same growth habit as reds.   Plant 1’-2’ apart in row; will fill in row with suckers in a year or two.  All raspberries dislike soggy roots; raised beds are a good strategy for the heavy clay soils in this region. Self fertile. . North American native plant.

Caroline Red Raspberry

(Rubus idaeus)

Full Sun. everbearing, disease resistant

Very vigorous, one of the best-flavored “everbearing” types: will crop early summer and again in the fall if only the dead (second year) shoots are selectively pruned out every winter. Most market growers (including us) mow down the entire plant every winter, resulting in a heavier crop of high quality berries in the fall only. Has good resistance to root rot diseases, but still needs a raised bed to thrive in our heavy clay.  Tolerant to grey mold. Caroline has shown exceptionally high antioxidant levels compared to other red raspberries.  Plant 1’-2’ apart in row; will fill in row with suckers in a year or two.  Does not need trellising.  Self fertile. . North American native plant.
