The muscadine grape is grown in the warm, humid, climate of southeastern USA.  This species of grapes has a tough, thick, skin.  They range in colors from bronze, dark purple, to black when ripe.  In the wild, deciduous muscadine vines grow sixty to one hundred feet with small greenish flowers and loose grape clusters of  three to forty a bunch.  Inside the grapes are hard, oblong, seeds.  Many wild varieties can stay green through maturity.  They ripen between mid September to late October.  A mature vine can yield, approximately, twenty pounds of fruit.  Muscadines can be eaten directly out of the hand or used to make jellies, jams, juices and wines.
