Looking for wild grapes.

Looking for cuttings, grapevine root, seeds or seedlings of Sand Grape-Sugar Grape (Vitis rupestris) and Mustang Grape (Vitis mustangensis). Thank you in advance, Pax

If I see any more of the mustang grape pop up in my yard I'll try to dig it up for you.

But it won't be until next spring. :)

Hey Pax -

I have both wild muscadine and mustang on my property. I won't know which is which till the spring, though, as they've lost their leaves (I do have a known patch of muscadine under my clothesline).

Since you want the mustang, I'll have to wait till spring to verify that's what I'm digging up, but I'd be glad to send you some. Or if you don't mind not knowing for sure, I'll dig some up now (I have some that if I don't dig up for you I'll be pulling up, as they're in an area for a new bed I'm preparing.

Just message me your address and wants :).

The mustang grapes grow everywhere, well at least farther south. You might find them along side the roads or choking a tree to death in a wooded area near you if they are like they are down south of you. Those are the ones you see wrapped around the fences that have that grape leave look. I have seen them with a trunk that was over 4 inches across. So if you run across any thing that looks like a vine with grape leaves it most likely will be mustang grapes. They ripen around August. and make very good jelly. But then so do those Cactus pear apples.
