Black variety muscadine plants produce sweet, delicious blackish red fruit. There are both self-fertile and female varieties available in black. Through the years customers have called all black varieties muscadines and all bronze varieties scuppernongs. They are all muscadines and scuppernong is a variety of muscadines. Scuppernong is a variety that was developed years ago and is a smaller bronze fruit.
The black muscadine plants make the prettiest jellies, jams and preserves. The color is a vibrant dark red. The juice and wine is also some of the best. Our black fruit sells equally as good as our bronze fruit at our fruit stand.
We recommend planting a wide selection of both bronze and black varieties. Black self-fertile muscadine plants can pollinate bronze female varieties and vice versa.
