Southern Home Grape

Vitus rotundifolia x vinifera

This vine is highly recommended for home plantings because it is self-fertile, has good flavor, and the cut leaf pattern of the leaves is very ornamental. Compared to popular muscadine grapes it has some of the same attributes such as vigor, disease resistance and even ripening. Harvest period is mid-season to late. Sugargate would be about 1 month earlier. Zone 7 - 9.

Southern Home grape was introduced in 1994 by J. Mortenson, J. Harris, D. Hopkins, and P. Anderson of the University of Florida. Southern Home is special among muscadine cultivars because the parents are a complex hybrid between v. rotundifolia, V. popenoei, V. munsoniana, and V. viniders. The first three species are all from the muscadina subgenus, and V. vinifera is the standard wine bunch grape species. You can tell the hybrid nature of this cultivar by the cut leaf pattern of the leaves.
