Black Fry Muscadine

Vitis rotundifolia

Full Sun to Part Shade. Large, sweet black fruit with seeds. Very vigorous, super disease resistant. Female variety needs bronze self-fertile for pollination (Carlos)

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
