    A yellow muscadine, sweet and self-fertile with a pleasing flavor. No spraying or bagging of fruit clusters needed. Native. The most widely planted yellow muscadine in North Carolina. Space 4’ x 8’, trellis 6’ tall. Zones 7-9.

    The fruit grows where temperatures seldom fall below 10° Fahrenheit.[6] Injury can occur where winter temperatures drop below 0° Fahrenheit. Some cultivars such as Magnolia, Carlos, and Sterling survive north to Virginia and west to the Blue Ridge Mountain foothills. Muscadines have a high tolerance to diseases and pests.
