When your plant matures, it will be approximately 4 - 6' tall x 12" wide.

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these plants 12 - 15' apart to ensure room for growth.

Suggested as a pollinator for the Cowart grapes. Tennessee is good for growing Muscadines.

What does it mean best pollinator: Cowart ? Is it mean must grow cowart muscadine grape vine next to it?
Loan P on Jan 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Cowart is just one option. We suggest it because it is a similar variety that blooms at approximately the same time in the season and has been shown to be a reliable pollinator. Any other muscadine variety with a similar bloom time would be suitable.
How would I start saplings from a mature vine?
Lisa Z on Jul 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Lisa, I have had good results by taking one of the longer, healthier vines and covering the middle part of the vine with good dirt and mulch and then adding a small weight, such as a brick, to keep the vine in place. The part of the vine that is in contact with the ground will grow its own roots and can eventually be pruned from the main part of the vine and it will survive on its own where it is or it can be transplanted to a location of your choice, preferably in the Fall of the year. At that time, treat it like any other transplant.
Hardness zone 8a what does this mean?
Tim S on Jan 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The USDA has a hardiness zone system that organizes regions by the average lowest temperature. The closer to the equator you go, the warmer it is, and the numbers go up. The coldest zone is 1a. Numbers are 10 degrees. A and B are 5 degree differences. So 8a is 5 degrees colder than 8b. 7a is 10 degrees colder than 8a. Search online for a USDA hardiness map and that should make it much more clear.

Depending on where you live, it might get too cold for some plants and it might stay too warm for others. That's the purpose of the system. So that you can judge whether or not a plant will grow well where you live.

It looks like Fry Muscadine is rated for zone 7 to 9.
Will Nesbitt and/or Cowart serve as pollinators for Fry variety?
flash on Apr 20, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Hi Gordon, We recommend using the Cowart as a pollinator for the Fry.
No seeds! In a fry muscadine. I assume this is a misprint?
Jeff B on Mar 3, 2021
BEST ANSWER: This is not a misprint, This is an improved form of the Scuppernong.
How old are the Fry vines? When will they bear fruit?
Ernie on Dec 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The age and size information for our grapes is as follows: 4??? pot: 6-12 months old and 4??? tall bare root: 1 year old and 12-18??? tall. Our grapes will typically take 2-3 years after planting to reach maturity and bear fruit.

Maybe I'm overlooking my answer.. Are these seedless or of a seeded variety...?
Amber M on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This variety of Fry is the seeded type.
Is there any variety that can be use as a pollinator for Fry besides Cowart? My Fry plants are doing great but the this is my 2nd try on Cowart and they both have died.

A great grower like all these grapes
I've gotten at least six different grape vines from Stark, and they all did well and grew quickly. Give two weeks after planting to wake up, then POW - the vine turns green and takes off.

The plants came in good shape and started growing shortly after planting. This is the second year for them and I'm already training them to the trellis.

Fry Muscadine
Why do you list a Fry as seedless? I have been growing the Fry and other varieties in the south for 20 plus years and never have I seen anyone describe them as seedless.
