Scuppernong

The white grape variety originates from the USA. Synonyms are American Muscadine, Big White Grape, Bull, Bullace, Bullet, Bullet Grape, Green Muscadine, Green Scuppernong, Hickman's Grape, Pedee, Roanoke, White Muscadine, White Scuppernong and Yellow Muscadine. It is an all-female grape variety and one of the few of the subgenus Muscadinia species Vitis rotundifolia. Along with Alexander, Catawba, Concord, Niagara and Norton, it is one of the most important historic varieties in the USA. It was one of the first American vines from which wine was attempted to be made in North America. All Muscadinia vines are often mistakenly called Scuppernong. It is probably directly descended from wild vines. The large, spherical berries are white-green to bronze-coloured, so it is assumed to be a mutation of the dark-berried Vitis rotundifolia.
