Golden Muscat has been named as one of the finest American grapes. A vineyard standard thanks to its vigorous and productive vines, this slip-skin grape is more hearty and luscious than many famous ‘old country’ grapes. Golden Muscat grapes are sweet, juicy and highly flavored — a good table grape, but shines in wine. These vines produce large clusters of delicious, oval, light-golden grapes. Some grape clusters can weigh as much as 7 pounds. Ripens in early September. Self-pollinating. A licensed variety of Cornell University.

I used to pick them as a child, and loved them. I guess I am in my 2nd childhood. They have the most delicious sweet flavor and I don't mind the seeds at all. they are especially good when they are hot from the sun.

How long does it take to be leave growth on my muscat grape vines that I purchased? The weather here is mid 70s to mid 80s.
Jacob M on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: After planting, new plants can take up to 6 weeks in spring before they break dormancy, depending on what the weather is like in any given year. If you're too curious to wait, you can try the Scratch Test to see if your vines are still just sleeping:
Why is it that grapes are hardy in my zone, but muscadine grapes don't?
Marie D on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I can grow some grapes I am zone 9b but you must grow grapes that Stark Bro's rate for your area just like peaches I grew them abundantly in zone 7 because of the chill factor and summer heat but they will not grow here in zone 9b hope one day they make a tree that will yield here in Arizona zone 9b
Are these good for wine making?
Fernando M on Mar 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Muscats are indeed good for making dessert wines.
Do these grapes taste similar to Niagara grapes/white grape juice? Has anyone made juice with them?
Marie Q on Mar 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Without tasting the grapes side by side, Niagara's flavor characteristics make it a good juice grape, while Golden Muscat is mostly used for wine. Some history: Niagara was considered a replacement for Diamond as a leading white-grape-juice grape, and Diamond is one of the "parents" of Golden Muscat. Golden Muscat would probably make a good grape juice, but hopefully someone will have a first-hand answer for you.

4??? pot: 6-12 months old and 4??? tall
bare root: 1 year old and 12-18??? tall

I have grape vines!!
We really like muscat grapes and decided to try a couple. We've never been able to keep grapes alive but that isn't the case with these. I was surprised at how much they grew the first summer. I didn't give them any special care except to protect them from deer and rabbits over the winter and was very happy to see them leafing out this spring. No fruit yet but they are young.

Wonderful flavor and sweet
I could not believe that the little fledgeling vine set fruit last year. Delicious! My only gripe: seeds. I thought I had ordered a seedless variety.

Good grape
The grape vine is doing very well and has several tiny clusters of grapes on it. It is a healthy plant and we are looking forward to tasting the grapes this summer.
