Hi! I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb. Raising muscadine, muscadines can be raised from seed, you can collect the seed. Do realize that with all seeds there's usually some genetic diversity. So most of the time if you want something to be really true to variety you'll probably break down and go buy one from the nursery or store where it's probably been growing vegetatively. But if you do take the seed, plant the seed about one-quarter of an inch deep. Now, this is a muscadine plant right here. Of course grapes have great-looking foliage and they certainly add to that tropical new ones that you get from grapes. Grapes of course will give you, muscadines will give you one to three to five grapes at a time. You're not going to have big, long clusters which will get large fruits sometimes a size of a quarter to the size of a half a dollar. The flavor is good. Muscadines are a little bit on the chewy side as opposed to some of the grapes that you maybe used to in the store. But they're full of sugar and they're full of flavor. Muscadines usually should be in full sun to partial shade, pH of about 5.5 to 6.5 and I would improve the planting site. If you're going to put them into a soil to start the seed, remember to take probably about two to three week for that seed to germinate. Growing grapes is fun. I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb.
