Muscadine in Virginia winter hardy maybe.
First off, I wanna thanks all your posts. They have been very helpful. After I found this forum I have added 21+ tree/vine/bush and I am quite broke. And still lots more to add.
I planted 6 muscadines last fall and added 2 more this April.
Here is my muscadine report:
Fall purchase Fall 2012:
Pam: Healthy,very vigorous, no winter die back.
Black beauty: healthy, virgorous, 6" die back from the tip.
Early fry: healthy, 1' die back from the tip.
late fry: died to the ground but coming back
Supreme: looked sicked, Not vigorous, 1' die back from the tip.
Ison: seems completely dead or so it seems, but I'll leave it in there to see.
Spring purchase 2013:
Triumph: healthy with flower clusters
Nesbitt: vigorous with flower clusters
If I had to do it again. I woud buy them in the spring. I thoughts the report from scottfsmith was very helpful. Hope this help.
If anyone is growing Muscadine in this area can you share your thoughts? I tasted muscadine for the 1st time last fall and I love it.
