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!

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.
