Muscadine Varieties

Need help choosing the right varieties of Muscadines?

Use the data table below to help you select the muscadine varieties that are the most well-suited to grow in your garden, and of course - produce the most fruit! This includes information regarding the specific 'Color' characteristics of the muscadines listed, as well as their recommended 'USDA Hardiness Zone', whether a 'Pollinator' is required for fertilization/fruiting, typical 'Ripening Period', 'Soluble Sugar' content, and maybe most important - the best 'Uses' for each variety listed - based on the overall physical characteristics of that variety (flavor/sugar%, texture, color, etc.). Use the 'Key" located at the top of the data table to determine the best 'Uses' for each muscadine variety. Choose a combination of Early-Mid-Late (ripening) varieties, and extend your muscadine harvest season! Keep in mind that many muscadine varieties require a separate 'Pollinator' for fertilization/fruiting. So, the more companion varieties you have growing in your garden - the better!

Pollinators = Plant variety/cultivar that is known to be effective at cross-pollinating with other varieties/cultivars (cross-fertilization).


Pollinator Required? - Yes = Female that requires a pollinator   /   No = Self-fertile (male and femal on same plant)

Uses:   C = Commercial  /  H = Home  /  F = Fresh Market   /  JL = Jelly  /  JU = Juice  /  O = Ornamental  /  P =  U-Pick  /  W = Wine
