The vine above is a young Scuppernong grape vine that is just hitting it's stride this year. I believe I planted it about 3 years ago and this is the first year that it produced alot of sweet, aromatic fruits. I'm sorry if you live too far north to experience this fruit, because I can not do the flavor or aroma justice with words.
Scuppernongs are a type of muscadine grape and they have big ol' seeds and a thick skin, but ohhh man ... they are so good.
I mentioned in a post last week that the wild muscadines are laden with fruit. A summer without rain (that changed this week!) has not seemed to bother them. They are delicious, I walk around eating them as I go about my yard duties.
The photo above and the one below are Pepper Vine (Ampelopsis arborea). These are not grapes, but they sure resemble the wild muscadines. The other critters eat them, but as far as I know, they're not on the human menu.
