The muscadine grape vitus rotundifolia, is native to the Southeast United States. Some refer to it as Scuppernong, which is a variety of muscadine known to grow wild. All muscadines have an amazing taste and fragrance and a hardiness necessary to survive the hot and humid south. Folk tales and home recipes refer to muscadine jelly, juice and wine, and even muscadine pie. High in resveratrol and ellagic acid, muscadines are a source of many antioxidants, especially concentrated in the skin and seeds of the fruit.
