Muscadine Grape Harvest

The Master Gardener Volunteers have been busy harvesting our muscadine grapes over the past 3 weeks.  To date, 116 pounds of grapes have been picked and donated to the local food bank.

In our Small Fruit Section at the Arboretum we are growing 4 varieties of muscadines:
*Nesbitts - a black colored grape 
*Carlos - bronze colored and the leading variety grown in NC
*Higgins - pink/bronze colored
*Hunt - dark purple colored
