Nesbitt Muscadine is a popular variety of muscadine grapes that are known for their large, juicy, and flavorful fruits. These grapes are sold as bare-root plants, which means they are shipped without soil or pots, but with their roots intact. Nesbitt Muscadine grapes are hardy in USDA zones 7 to 10. They thrive in areas with long, hot growing seasons and high humidity. Ideally, they should be planted in an area that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.

  • Fruit Description: Large, black berries with a tough skin and a sweet, juicy pulp.
  • Flavor Profile: Distinctively sweet with musky undertones, ideal for fresh eating, juices, and wines.
  • Yield: High-yielding when properly maintained.

Plant the grape vines in early spring, after the last frost date in your area.
Dig a hole that is deep enough to accommodate the roots, and wide enough to allow them to spread out comfortably.
Space the grape vines at least 8 feet apart to allow for good air circulation.
Train the grape vines to grow on a trellis or other support system, as they will need to climb in order to produce fruit.
Water the grape vines regularly, especially during the first few weeks after planting.
