Muscadine Facts

The binomial name for Muscadine is Vitis rotundifolia. Almost all Grapes in the world come from cultivars of Vitis vinifera, or Common Grape vine, native to the Mediterranean and Central Asia. Relatively minor amounts of Grapes come from American and Asian species including Vitis rotundifolia, and also Vitis labrusca, or Fox Grape, that includes the famous Concord Grape cultivar, Vitis riparia, the wild Riverbank Grape or Frost Grape, native to the Eastern U.S. and up to Quebec, and Vitis amurensis, the Amur Grape, the most important Asian species.
