I'm interested in scuppernong, muscadine

I understand that these grapes are famous, in the south, so have come to Southern Gardening to ask for them.

The least I can do is cover shipping for vines, plantlets, or seeds of Vitus rotundifolia and other grape varieties.

If you have a trade list, I will respond in kind, with anything, which may be in season.

Thanks for reading.

I can send you cuttings of both for a large SASBE.

Thank you very much, zackey.

Could you guesstimate the correct postage, between your place and southern California? ( 92223 )

RE: I'm interested in scuppernong, muscadine

I got your package today. I won't need all of the stamps that you sent. I will fill the envelope and return whatever postage I don't need.

I sent your cuttings yesterday and one of each grapes. Hopefully you will be able to taste them. Very different flavors.

Hi, Zackey.

I just got them a few minutes ago and wanted to answer a questions you had in your letter.

The inside of the package was very moist. So, I planted them straight in the shade, without soaking.

With the thicker stemmed varieties, I have luck, just planting the nodes. Since this kind has more slender stems, I kept them intact, straight up and down, with just the top leaves showing.

I wasn't able to taste your samples, because they became alcoholic, on the way here. I was able to show my family how they look and salvage the seeds.

Most people know things like pruning spurs down to the second and third node, every year, but not why the grapes come out different than the ones from the store. I'm ttaking the time to learn how it's done on farms and coming up with new ideas of my own.

I wasn't worried that the leaves had started to go into dormancy for the year.

I do not typically water when the plant is showing no heat stress or when the plant is not in fruit, although it is sometimes very dry, here. I find that very slow watering of fruiting vines makes the grapes big without splitting them.

Thank you very much for reading. I will be signing off, for now.
