'Southern Home' Muscadine

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Have to pull out some blackberry bushes that have a fungus.  Decided to replace with this variety of muscadine.  Hope to be able to make some wine once they get to producing. Has anyone had any experience with this variety?  Any tips on muscadines in general?

You need to build a trellis and let one stem go up the trellis

Yes I had a 2 wire trellis for the blackberries. Converted it to a 1 wire at 5'.  Will prune down to one dominant stem and then top off once it gets slightly higher that 5' and allow two lateral cordons to stretch out across the wire.  I will try and keep this updated. Input is much appreciated, thanks!

I have had Muscadines (Suco) on on a trellis for about 5 yrs.  The biggest problem I had was squirrels.  I sorta have given up.  I have actually moved my vegetable garden to   Terrebonne parish,

Yes I have that problem as well, they eat my figs, blackberries and satsumas.  I have a "plan" for them once the muscadines start producing.

Those bushytails have been raiding my mulberry tree lately. I don't mind them somewhat as long as they don't do what they did to my other tree a couple of years ago. They stripped the bark off of the main trunks basically girdling the tree which killed it.
