    Anyone made any jelly yet? My wife made 5 batches last week but none came from wild vines. Maybe after I retire I will have more time to find wild muscadines.

    There are a lot of wild muscadines on private land in the state. Why would that be illegal ?

    Difference? If they catch ya..Transplanting
    Which they never could..One of the laws that can't be enforced..

    A local Muscidane co..Here uses clothes lines and natural Bird Droppings to replant.
    All legal..80 Acer of Muscidanes...

    I didn't have enough fruit to make a to-go packet of jelly. Just an off year in the cycle I guess. Wild vines.

    Wild vines here didn't produce. We had a wet spring which hinders pollination/fruit set, and then a dry period during fruit development. No bueno. The wet weather hurt production on my cultivated vines...that and they are only 2nd year. I have enough to make a cake.

    My neighbors place that butts up to my property has a few wild vines that I have been picking and getting the fallen ones off the ground. Doesn't look like I'm going to get enough for jelly. Bummer.
