Wild Muscadines:

rntheriotDecember 8, 2008

We found a huge Muscadine vine in the woods this weekend. It is at max 4" in diameter. Its arms rise 150 feet into some oak trees.

How old is the vine??

Do I dare prune it??

Thanks

Lucky you! I believe wild muscadine vines can be male or female so not all of them produce fruit. I found a few articles from searching on google.com telling how to prune older vines that might help you. I don't have any experience with them myself. I have been researching whether I can grow them in southwest Missouri.
