Muscadines are the southern version of the grape. I grew up eating these delicious fruit, both straight off the vine and in the form of jelly (jam). Most of the time they were scuppernongs which are muscadines but green in color, but they turn a slight golden color when ripe. Early explorers called them white grapes.
Muscadines have thicker skin than a grape. They are also more beneficial health wise than the average grape. They have many antioxidants and rich sources of polyphenols.
