Muscadines are easy to grow in the home garden in North Carolina. As a native species, the muscadine is well adapted to our climate and growing conditions. Pest and disease issues are generally minor and can be ignored. Unless you plan to make your own wine, choose large-fruited, sweet varieties. You won’t need many vines!
