Muscadine is a grapevine species. It is in the southeastern United States. They grow well in a warm and humid climate.

Muscadine berries are bronze to dark purple to black in color when ripe. However, many wild varieties stay green. Their skin is very tough. To eat the raw fruit a person bites a small hole in the skin to suck out the pulp inside. Muscadines are not only eaten fresh, but also are used in making wine, juice, and jelly.
