Ison's Nursery & Vineyard is a Third generation, family owned farm. You can buy with confidence from the grower! We have been in business since 1934 and have an A+ rating the Better Business Bureau.
We were one of the first nurseries to begin shipping fruiting plants, trees and berries.
Muscadines are our specialty! In the late 1960's, our dad Bill Ison and Dr. B.O. Fry began breeding muscadines in order to improve size, taste and production. From the fruits of their labor we now have over 22 patented varieties of muscadine! These varieties are considered the best for commercial vineyards, u-pick operations, and the back yard hobbyist.
We have over 45 acres of muscadines in fruit production and a nursery that offers over 200 varieties of fruit, nut and berry plants.
Although we specialize in Muscadines, Blueberries and Blackberries, we also offer you what is in our opinion the best tasting fruit and nut trees available.

1. We guarantee our stock will arrive to you in a live, plant-able condition or we will replace at no charge if we are notified within 7 days of receipt. If the packaging has been damaged, it is important for you to contact both us and Fed EX or USPS.
2. We guarantee our stock to be true to name.
3. Since the growth of nursery stock is determined to a large extent by the care it receives from the planter and grower, due to conditions beyond the seller’s control, including but not limited to soil and weather conditions, we cannot and do not warrant and guarantee growth. We will replace* at 1/2 the purchase price any plants that do not live or leaf out the first Spring after they were planted. We require photo verification, including evidence that you have performed a “scratch test”. This can be submitted by email or mail.
Patent Plants: All muscadine plants that are patented and copyrighted cannot be propagated for any reason, for self use, for resale or for breeding work without direct written consent from Ison’s Nursery & Vineyards. Anyone found in violation will be prosecuted. All muscadine varieties developed at Ison’s Nursery & Vineyard are copyrighted and trademarked.
1. For plants ordered and planted between November and March 31st allow time for the plants to leaf out. For most Fruiting plants this could be into late April.
2. To see if the plant is alive use your fingernail and scratch the plant near ground level – if the plant is green – the plant is still alive and should leaf out – continue the fertilizer program and water them.
If the plant is brown – or if the plants do not leaf out – you have until July 1st to notify us in writing and we will replace the next shipping season per our warranty on page 29 of our catalog. (1/2 price)
In general, Muscadines are among the last plant types to leaf out in the spring.
They have a low chilling hour requirement in the 200-500-hour range. However, they have a very high heat accumulation requirement in the spring before they will break bud and grow. This characteristic keeps the plants dormant many times until late into the spring.
Please notify us in writing of any losses.

We are certified to ship muscadine vines to California. (100% void of soil)
We do not ship any other plants or trees to California.
Chill hours are the number of hours below 45 degrees in the winter. Fruiting plants need to rest during the winter and you will notice how many chill hours a plant requires in the description.
Caliper measures the thickness of the trunk of a tree. Most of our trees are 4-5' tall with a 1/2" caliper. Meaning the trunk is 1/2 thick.
The caliper of the tree is more important than the height of the tree.
A bare-root plant or tree is one without soil around the roots. Our plants and trees are either field grown or grown in a container. Fruit, nut and berry plants are planted in the winter time while the plant is dormant. When we ship bare-root plants we remove the soil and add a moisture gel around the roots to keep them moist. The plants are not actively growing and no stress is placed on the plant.
They will be ready to wake up in the spring at their new home.

Muscadine grapes are native to the southeastern United States. Muscadines ripen from late July through mid October. They will often be on the vine until the first fall frost comes. They are large, thick-skinned and seeded grapes that grow in small, loose clusters and are often harvested as individual berries. They can be bronze, red or black in color. And they are sooooo delicious! A true southern treat. Georgia is the largest grower of muscadines with about 1200 acres in production. North Carolina is a close second.
Though they still grow wild, most of today’s muscadines and scuppernongs are grown in commercial vineyards. Harvest season is typically August through mid-October.
One of the most common questions we are asked is….What is the difference between a muscadine and a scuppernong? Many people in fact consider any bronze muscadine to be a “scuppernong” But this is actually not true.
“All Scuppernongs are Muscadines, but not all Muscadines are Scuppernongs.” The name Muscadine is a broad category of grape that includes many varieties of both bronze and black grapes. Both bronze and dark varieties taste great and make wonderful jams, jellies, pies, juices and wines.
Scuppernong is “one” variety of a muscadine that happens to be bronze. With Scuppernong being one of the oldest and most popular varieties, the name is sometimes used to refer to any bronze variety of muscadine. There are now many other varieties of muscadines used both in wine production and for fresh eating.
