They are gorgeous! But are they a small cherry, or a blueberry, what?
These are a newer variety of muscadine. Sweet and crunchy but they do have seeds. This year they are about one inch in diameter.
Hey Auburn. Do they bloom at the same time as black beaty, supreme, and sugargate? I have those 3 along with lane hopefully for pollenation.
I just went back and checked my bloom time records. Lane, Black Beauty, and Supreme mostly bloomed at the same time (20190523). I don’t have Sugargate.
How’s the fruit stack up compared to Southern Home?
I prefer Lane over Southern Home. Lane is a little bigger and sweeter tasting. Most muscadines are slip skin but Lane tends to be more like a table grape and be crunchy. The peel of Lane breaks somewhat like a grape but it is still a little tougher. The crunchy nature to me is what separates it from many other good muscadines for fresh eating. With that said it would be a stretch to think it is just like a table grape. I’m getting away from the Lane and Southern Home comparison but Black Beauty and Supreme (females) have some similar characteristics as Lane but are rated to have a higher sugar content. These require two vines (female and self fertile) and in many cases we don’t have the additional space needed.
