● Scuppernong grapevines prefer to be grown in full sun in well-drained soils and should be planted roughly six feet apart on a trellis. Once your scuppernong vine has gone dormant for the winter you should prune the grapevine up to a third to encourage heavy fruit production the next season. The scuppernong grapes will ripen in the late summer and the fruiting period could last up to six weeks, giving you ample time to get some frozen, juiced, or turned into jelly, or to consume them as fresh, healthy, organic snacks. Growing your own grapes is easily done and is the solution for a Preppers food needs, as the vines will continue to produce useful grapes that every year replenish your food stocks. Your survival garden would not be complete without a couple of scuppernong grapevines.
  • Carlos (male) scuppernong grapevines are a very heavy-producing grapevine, which makes this variety perfect for juicing and jelly production. The bronze grape is a medium-sized scuppernong, but the quality and amount of fresh grapes produced is unmatched. The fruit ripens uniformly, which makes the harvest simpler as it could be done by machines. This is by far the most popular scuppernong grape; approximately 90% of North Carolina's entire scuppernong production is of Carlos.

  • One of the most popular scuppernongs for eating fresh, and which are grown in U-pick operations, is the Fry (female) scuppernong. These delicious scuppernongs ripen August through September, and fruits from the Fry scuppernong are large, sweet, and bronze in color. This variety is bred for the South and is a great drought tolerant, low-maintenance food source for Preppers to plant in their survival garden.

● Scuppernong grapevines produce a bronze grape that is very comparable in flavor to muscadines (they are often referred to as bronze muscadines). The two scuppernong vines for sale are the Carlos (male) and the Fry (female).

5 of 5 Healthy Grape vines April 1, 2021
Reviewer: April Crews from Brunswick, GA United States  
I received my grape vines quickly and in healthy condition. The vines were packaged well, vines were clearly labeled, and roots were packaged with extra care. I will order again with this nursery.

2 of 5 Plant seemed to be shipped dead July 12, 2017
Reviewer: harlos guyton from rising star, TX United States  
Received the plant about two weeks after the order was placed. Opened the package and noticed that there wasn't  any foliage on the stem that was about 24" long.
At the very tip of the stem I bent the stem and it broke off. The stem was dead at the tip.  I continued bending the stem until I was about a foot from the roots. The stem wS dad  I went ahead and planted the plant. Today I checked the stem and 6" from the roots the stem is dead.  I think the plant was shipped dead.  I

5 of 5 Tara Scuppernong June 21, 2017
Reviewer: edward coyle from Staten Island, NY United States  
I ordered one before this which had very few roots and it died. My lack of experience with scuppernongs, or insufficient roots, I don't know.
So, I ordered another, asking that it have more roots.
I was surprised to receive 2! One was as a replacement for the first, which I didn't ask for.
Both are planted and time will tell. They have beautiful roots, and should do fine.
Thanks to all at Prepper Gardens!
