This is a native vine that grows freely over much of the South. It produces fruit that is used in making jellies, jams and wines. Improved cultivars are available that produce large, delicious fruit. This vine is well adapted to use on large landscape structures like arbors and pergolas but they need to be made of heavy materials to support the heavy and aggressive growth of muscadine vines. Late in the season muscadine foliage often shows signs of fungal leaf spot diseases. Severe pruning is normally required every late winter.
