I have grown this vine for several years in the Houston Texas area and it performs very well. It can be grown organically, and produces excellent yields every year. It is a small, marble size fruit that is a red bronze color. It has a very good taste, thin skin, and is sweet. Since it was released in 1977, it is not as large as the newest muscadine grape cultivars, but it is well worth growing because the fruit is very good quality. Remember it is a female and you will need a male to pollinate it.
