Tag Archives: muscadine grape idenification

Are these muscadine grapes? Or am I about to poison my family?

Standard

UPDATE: These are indeed muscadine grapes. I have been harvesting and eating them. Yummy!

I noticed these grape-like vines growing above my garden. I guess I have never tasted a purple one before, maybe in years past I have just sampled them at the green stage?

The fruit grows in clusters of just a few at a time.

Everything I’ve read seems to support the muscadine grape theory. I took a little taste of one, and it seemed sweet.

Can anyone confirm? I picked almost a pint the other day, and I’d like to know if they are surely edible or if I will surely die.
