We have a muscadine vine in our backyard that produces a SLEW of grapes. I can't eat them though...they make my jaw draw up. LOL

I remember these from my younger days in NC. We used to like juice made from the grapes and they make good Jelly.

I don't think I've ever tasted of those kind of grapes. Will you be making jelly or are they good for eating?

I grew up in NC and only heard about Muscadine Grapes recently. I'd love to take my kids to pick Muscadine Grapes. It would be a great field trip for them.
