    Anyone else plant muscadines in your yard?
    There’s no better jelly in the world to me so I planted some two years ago. The first two years I kept them trimmed up to grow them out. I’m hoping to get some berries this year. They’re growing great.

    I’m excited to see what they’ll do. I’d like to know if I need a certain fertilizer to help them make.

    You’ll have muscadine grapes if you keep them watered when it gets dry, been raising them about 6 years now. Make great jelly!

    It it a self pollinator? There’s male, female and self pollinators. Self pollinators will pollinate females within 50 feet. They make grapes also. Males make no grapes just flowers to pollinate female vines.

    I have no idea. I’ve got two vines and they both have clusters of grapes growing.

    Where do you all buy your vines to plant?

    Tame muscadines are good, bigger and will out produce wild ones, but I much prefer the taste of the wild ones. Not as sweet and a stronger flavor.

    Pretty sure the ones we have are wild. I made some fantastic jelly and my husband's favorite muscadine cake last fall. I hope we have a good crop this year! I'm going to order some to plant as well. (thanks for the tip Turkey 63)

    I got mine from a local nursery.
    I’d forgotten that cake you made. It looked awesome.

    That cake is easy to make and always turns out so moist and awesome.

    Well...and now I know why one of the vines near our pond never produces fruit. It's a male apparently!

    What about wine? Nobody make muscadine wine anymore? Tasty stuff.
