The vines cover two acres of my 50-acre farm, land which was originally used for cattle farming. I harvested the first ripe grapes back in 2014, and it didn’t take long for a loyal Cleveland County customer base to take shape. Today, locals enjoy five different varieties of the succulent, sweet fruit — Tara, Triumph, Supreme, Nesbit and Summit.
It takes time, and patience, to care for the grape vines. Each vine is carefully pruned back in February and March to stimulate growth for the season. The vines bloom in June with tiny white flowers that are pollinated by native bees and butterflies. And in July, the vines are “skirted,” a second pruning to remove low-hanging vines which make harvesting easier.
As the grapes ripen – anywhere from August to November depending on the variety –their color changes. Bronze grapes go from bright green to a more mellow bronze color, and purple grapes turn almost black. Unlike other grapes, muscadines are not harvested all at once, but as individual berries. A ripe muscadine has a sweet fragrance and falls easily from the stem.
