I planted some black & gold muscadines (sp) a few years ago and they have grown well but I can't even give them away, Thought I might replace them with grapes. Anyone have any recommendations on a variety that would do well for Augusta Ga? Full sun, sandy, well drained soil with irrigation.
I'm not from the Carolinas but I have muscadine grapes, too (inherited them with the house and yard.)
Just in case you don't find any suitable substitutes, I thought I'd share my sympathies...boy, do fresh muscadines make you pucker up! The upside is they make awesome grape jelly (which I can't hardly make enough of, because my kids (and nephews) think that's the only thing in the world to put on your sausage biscuits and peanutbutter sandwiches ;o)
i'm not partial to them, but most people around here squeeze the sour skin, popping the sweet innards directly into their mouths, avoiding the pucker power. 'course you still have to spit out the seeds... tammy
they have a winery right around the corner that grows them to make wine with. they used to buy them from others dont know if they still do.
grapes are hard to do here unless you live in the north georgia area. i have tried several times and just failed. my local nursery wont even sell them.lowes and places like that sell things they shouldnt sell in areas.
