wanted: Scheele sand/sugar grape (native wild grape)

Looking for source of Vitis rupestris (Scheele sand/sugar grape). Also goes by bush grape and other names too. It is common in the Ozarks. Found in the wild, it is pretty much considered a stand alone and has deep roots. Thanks in advance. Pax, Mick

Mick, that may be the variety my parents looked for each year. They got harder and harder to locate, since the area became more and more residential. I live in SW Missouri -- could they also be called Fox Grapes? If so, they certainly were in our area and made wonderful jelly.

You might google this variety, also contact Missouri Conservation Dept. and even Newton County Extension office for more information.

Good luck -
