The MotherVine is a female plant. If there are no wild Muscadines nearby you will need to plant a male or perfect flower for every 3 female plants.
These will bear fruit in one to three years in August. Ships late Spring.
Four one-year-old muscadine vines. Three Mother Vine vines (Scuppernong muscadine) and One Perfect Flower (Noble muscadine vines).
The one-year-old scuppernong muscadine vines were taken from cuttings directly off the old lady herself. The scuppernong is a bronze cultivar (golden juice) of the muscadine (vitis rotundifolia), native to the south-eastern United States. Scuppernongs are always female and need help to produce fruit. Be sure a Perfect Flower or male muscadine is nearby. Muscadines are pollinated by the wind.
The Perfect Flower is a Noble muscadine and has a “perfect flower”. It will self-pollinate and pollinate nearby female muscadines like a scuppernong. This is a black cultivar and will produce a red juice.
All vines cultivated by Tinga Nursery, Castle Hayne, NC, since 1913.
A portion of the proceeds go to Outer Banks Conservationists to preserve The Mother Vine, Currituck Lighthouse, and other heritage sites.
