Have You Tasted Fruits Called as Muscadine? - Part 1 – Food Variety 19

Friday, April 22, 2022

We buy grapes in the farmer market sometimes, especially on Tuesday market close to home.


Unexpectedly, we noticed the grape like fruit recently.



Fig 01- The grape like fruits, Muscadine


The shape are similar to grapes, its called as Muscadine with scientific name is Vitis rotundifolia. Common grape for wine has scientific name Vitis vinifera. So, both Muscadine and grape have the same genus, Vitis.


Then, few differences of Muscadine compared to grapes are:

- rounder or oval berry shape

- thicker and tougher skin

- contain about 5 seeds in each fruit.

- flesh is clear and translucent



Fig 02- A statue, just for illustration



Fig 03- Plants, just for illustration



Fig 04- Muscadine jelly, sold in Walmart


I bought one color only, but many colors are found in the market, we believe common colors are:

- light bronze

- pink

- purple

- black

- light green


This fruit is native to America, grows mainly in the areas of southeastern and south central USA.

  1. ...in the '60s when I was a horticulture student at the University of Georgia I had a job working with a professor studying Muscadines. He was trying to increase the sugar content.

  8. Muscadines are the only grapes that will grow in South Carolina. I have yet to taste one. I have tried muscadine wine but did not care for it. They are an acquired taste!
