Muscadine Grapes

Muscadine grapes really love the heat and humidity that is common in the South and thrive in this region as a result. Colonists on Roanoke Island are the ones credited with discovering the “Scuppernong Mother Vine,” which is over 400 years old and has, throughout history, been known to produce grapes up to two inches in diameter. In 2001, the North Carolina General Assembly named the muscadine grape (also known as the scuppernong grape) the official state fruit.
