I love the taste of these grapes. They're very healthy and I'm hoping they will bear fruit very well. They'll be a great snack to go with my healthy diet.

I have been told it was one of the best. It reached the top wire in one growing season.

i live in the sw desert; this is a heat tolerant grape. it also bears late, so hoping it
buds out late in the spring and avoids late spring frosts.

I have not tried the Nesbit Muscadine, it being new. But it is a cross between a Fry
Grape and a Cowart, both of which I have been growing in my vineyard for several years.It is two of my favorite flavor grapes. I am looking forward to growing this grape. What a combination!

is this a male or female?
richard g on Mar 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These vines are self fertile. We have planted over a dozen and they have done well. We have found that they do better if they are kept potted and babied the first summer and then planted in the fall...putting them (bare root) straight in the ground in the spring has resulted in a 50% loss pf plants vs. 90% success in potting thru the summer. (The remaining 10% loss was due to deer damage). Nesbitts take the cold extremely well and the production for such young vines was amazing.
Is the nesbitt muscadine grape seedless ?
jeff H on May 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The grapes are not seedless but very sweet and large fruits. The very first year of buying this plant i had mascadine in late August to September.

muscadine grape
i live in southern utah (zone 7a) and thought a grape that likes hot, humid weather might do ok in hot, dry weather. thought it would be worth a shot, so i took a chance. i wasn't sure it would make it through the winter here, though; as it turned out, it didn't even survive the summer. disappointing, but not surprising. the desert can be a tough environment. oh well, live and learn.
on the plus side, delivery was quick, and the plant was in good shape when it arrived. stark bros shipping and handling has always been pretty good .
it would be helpful if people's reviews included which zone they're in.

Nesbit muscadine grapes
I bought 4 Nesbit muscadine grapes and planted them the same day I received them. They didn't seem to be growing after a couple of weeks, so I called Stark Brothers. They lady I spoke to said I needed to prune them leaving 1-2 buds, which I did. Three of the vines never grew. The third one started to put out leaves, then died. I have always been satisfied with Stark Brothers products until now.

Never grew!
I ordered two of these vines. After a mixed up shipment that did not have any muscadine vines at all in it, they sent replacements and I received them on May 2. I let them sit in water for a day and planted them the net day. The vines never grew and the same little dried up twigs that was sent to me stayed in the ground for six months with no signs of life. I ordered some grape vines at the same time and planted them nearby. The grapes are flourishing and growing like crazy, but these...still dried up little twigs!

Beautiful Plant!
I lost one of the two I purchased but this one is just beautiful. Hopefully it will decide to deliver fruit in the years to come. I'd grow it just for the beautiful color of the vine!
